No, vino doesn't do anything by default (just confirmed in sid).  What
do you have configured in System -> Preferences -> Remote Desktop ?  By
default, nobody can connect at all.  Clicking on the only initially
active checkbox ("Allow other users to view your desktop") results in a
configuration where other users can connect, but they can't actually
view or control your desktop until you've approved their connection via
a popup dialog.  If you uncheck "Ask you for confirmation" and neglect
to check "Require the user to enter this password" and provide a
password, then it seems that unauthenticated, unapproved connections are
allowed.  IMO this should never ever be allowed, but it is.  It's
definitely not the default state, though.
