This question pertains to the new RealVNC vulnerability:


I have some clients running RealVNC 4.0.0.
Sources imply that PROBABLY this version is not affected.
(for example: "Note: Version 4.0 is reportedly not affected.).

Can anyone verify that Version 4.0.x is DEFINITELY not affected?

I need to be sure, for obvious reasons.

Thank you!

You should really check this with the authors (you can submit a support request only if you are not using the free version):


However, the last item you linked to links to this page:


Where the guy who discovered the flaw states he has tested this on version 4.0:

 " Then I downloaded RealVNC 4.0 and installed it on another fresh test machine. Same thing as Tight and Ultra - I get disconnected right away. "

So it would appear he has been unable to re-create the issue on 4.0.
