I am a domain admin on my corporate network and recently found out that another admin has set group policy to open port 5900 (VNC) to all workstation in the enterprise. That's fine for end-users (with end-user level privileges). But I don't like the idea of someone being able to observe my session invisibly and I REALLY don't like the idea of this admin being to act under my session and do whatever they want (which would just point back to me). :eek:

I could go in a change the GPO that is forcing Windows Firewall to keep the VNC port open, but the other admin would probably just change it back. So, is there a way I can protect myself here? Maybe by installing a 3rd party app that will block port 5900, despite what Windows Firewall say?
