Possible serious TeamViewer exploit

Post by (HHC/229) Dabomb on Sat 4 Jun 2016 - 13:11

Hey guys,

I know a lot of us use TeamViewer (TV) on our PCs. Please check out the link below. At the very least, you will want to change and strengthen your TV passwords. If you really want to be safe, you may want to think about disabling TV on your machines until more info on this comes out.

You are most at risk if running TV extensively or a matter of course, i.e. start at windows start, server / DCS control, lazy mans VPN rtc... I do not see a reason to un-install it, just do not run until the matter is clarified.
