TeamViewer Hacked

Do you login remotely to your PC or server? If so, take a minute and check the program that you’re using. If you use TeamViewer to login remotely, we strongly suggest finding another remote access program. If you need assistance, call us at (561) 969-1616 and we will be glad to help.

Last week, it was reported that many TeamViewer users were experiencing strange behavior. In some cases, it appeared as if their computers were being accessed by a third-party (hacker). While TeamViewer has been relatively quiet on the subject, it appears as if hackers have gained access to user accounts at TeamViewer. With these accounts, hackers could login to your PC and access your data.

While PalmTech does not presently recommend TeamViewer, several major software vendors throughout the United States typically use this program. If you are a PalmTech managed client, we will check your systems and let you know if a vendor or employee is using TeamViewer. If you are not a managed client, check all computers and servers and make sure TeamViewer is not installed.
