How Secure is Synergy against Hackers

I have 2 computers on the same network. I use Synergy2 to share the Keyboard/Mouse. One of these computers is used as a web page server.

Linux Ubuntu, php, Mysql, Apache.

I have static IP address and have port forwarded my router so my local website can be seen by the internet via the static IP address.

Does Synergy pose a hacking risk to my server computer or the other computers that uses Synergy.

Are there any precautions I need to implement to lock Synergy Down in my particular situation.


Thank you...


P.S. I am a paid up user of Synergy because it is a fantastic tool.. Keep the good work up....
