As the title reads I'm curious about the security of the screen sharing feature of Skype. I've never used it, but I'm thinking that it is a much easier alternative to having a user enable Remote Login and Screen Sharing in the System Preferences every time they need help or I need to perform some maintenance. Of course, the two services could be left on, but it's an unnecessary security risk when they move between trusted and untrusted networks. The advantage of Skype Screen sharing seems to be that the user that needs help shares their screen and when done turns it off. Any suggestions? P.S. I think that iChat has a similar feature were a user can share their screen without having to modify any System Preferences. However, I don't know if this works if both parties don't user MobileMe.
