Hi,

If an SSH tunnel is created and used to allow say HTTP browser traffic to
occur from client to server, what security risks (if any) are introduced by
this tunnel? e.g.

- ability for other rogue apps on the client to use the tunnel to get to the
server?
- ability for other rogue apps on the server (with the web app) to use the
tunnel to attach the client?
- does the tunnel effectively "join" the networks?

Assume for example use of Putty to SSH to the server, but with a tunnel
specified to forward local say port 7777 traffic to the server host xxxx on
port yy.

Tks
