If you see this file on your system, and YOU didn't install it, (You'd know.), You are in TROUBLE! Someone who had access to your system likely set it up to allow them FULL ACCESS to your computer, even the ability to watch you work without your knowledge! Serious potential for misuse!!!

I don't find it dangerous. Very useful remote desktop program

Like PD said, this is dangerous if it shouldn't be on your computer. Otherwise it's a very useful tool. I guess it might come under 'advanced use' for this reason.

vnc is hacked and some virus use it to install msconfig2 on your system... only use vnc inside your home network or on vpn/hamachi networks... just be sure your firewall/router blocks incomming ports from ip adresses from the internet... vpn/hamachi vnc control still works because data is transported trough a tunnel...

Depends. Teacher use it help students. Parents used it find out what their children are doing. Of course there are people that abuse it.
