The Teamviewer hack

This is not good.

For more than a month, users of the remote login service TeamViewer have taken to Internet forums to report their computers have been ransacked by attackers who somehow gained access to their accounts. In many of the cases, the online burglars reportedly drained PayPal or bank accounts. No one outside of TeamViewer knows precisely how many accounts have been hacked, but there’s no denying the breaches are widespread.

TeamViewer denies it has been hacked. The company has instead blamed weak passwords and password reuse for user’s woes. Regardless, if you have TeamViewer installed on your computer you should probably change your password. Or better yet, delete the program all together.
