Security concerns?

Hi. I've been asked by powers that be (who can approve or disapprove where
or whether we originate a CU-SeeMe-based videoconference during a Shuttle
mission) to inquire about known or possible security holes in CU-SeeMe.

Frankly, I don't know how to go about writing a network-transmitted virus
(or whatever) that could infect both PC's and Macs, so I would guess the
concern is mostly about the reflector software --- after all, it runs on unix
systems.

Any comments I can pass on to the ptb's?

Thanks,

Joe Gurman
