Hello everyone,

I am glad to inform you that TightVNC 2.0.4 is available for download. The files can be downloaded here:


TightVNC 2.0.4 is a bugfix release, it corrects a few problems discovered in the previous version.

What's Fixed?

Here is the list of changes in TightVNC 2.0.4, as compared to version 2.0.3. All the changes are in the server part, the viewer is almost the same as in the previous version.

  • Fixed a potential security problem which could allow a logged in user to gain elevated privilegies in file transfers. This problem affected Windows 2000 systems only.
  • CPU use was significantly reduced in idle periods when there are no users connected.
  • Fixed a problem which resulted in wrong color rendering on "big-endian" viewers (e.g. PowerPC-based Mac viewers).
  • Fixed rendering of semi-transparent mouse cursors. Previously, big black boxes could be seen instead of such cursors.
