I agree and do not trust it. But GoToMyPC is an interesting model for
research and any resulting analysis should include the issues.  There are
plenty of other programs that do the same thing without the middleman but do
you really trust them if you can't see/understand the source code or know
and trust the vendor?  GoToMyPC is just being pushed real hard in
advertising. The ease of setting these things up and the likely emergence of
less "benevolent" versions makes host based IDS more and more attractive.

BTW, Vincent, you should also be looking at TLS, the "standard" and
Microsoft blessed follow on to SSL.
