Forwarding to the Ubuntu Desktop mailing list, which is more relevant
for such a discussion.

Hi

I originally posted this message as [Bug 790009] on Launchpad.
It was suggested that this list is a better place for the suggestion.
------

Having "remote desktop" as an option in the default installation
creates a security risk.

It invites new users to enable it, not understanding the security
implications. They then end up with unwanted connections to their
machine. A quick look around the "security discussions" forum on
ubuntuforums shows that this happens quite frequently.

I propose that it should be removed from the LiveCD. If a remote connection
program is needed, then something that*requires* SSH tunnelling could be
provided.
