Impact: Connecting to a third-party VNC server with "Encrypt all network data" set may lead to information disclosure
Description: When connecting to a third-party VNC server with "Encrypt all network data" set, data is not encrypted and no warning is produced. This issue is addressed by creating an SSH tunnel for the VNC connection in this configuration, and preventing the connection if the SSH tunnel cannot be created. This issue does not affect Apple Remote Desktop 3.5.1 and earlier.
