The DeskCon Project makes use of the OpenSSL Libraries on Linux and Android. That means that a Heartsbleed Attack is possible, at least at the Desktop side.
Most Android Versions do not have the “Heartbeat” Feature enabled (only Android 4.1.1) so most are save, but to be sure you can use this App to test your Device.
This has been fixed in OpenSSL 1.0.1g. Please update your OpenSSL Package!
I created a Launchpad PPA Repository for the Desktop Packages of DeskCon. This Repo is for usage with Ubuntu Quantal, Saucy and Trusty.
To add the PPA, run these in your Terminal
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:screenfreeze/deskcon
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install deskcon-server
sudo apt-get install gnome-shell-extension-deskcon
sudo apt-get install deskcon-indicator
