Urgent Alert – TeamViewer Security Weakness

by | Jun/6/2016

Many users of TeamViewer are reporting that attackers are compromising their systems. Even users that use two-step logon, aka multifactor authentication, report that they have experienced breaches. So it does not appear to be a case of users re-using passwords.

For now, until more is known, the most effective defense is to uninstall TeamViewer from each workstation. This of course will be very inconvenient. But, if you will leave it enabled, be sure your organization’s executives understand the risk. It is their choice whether or not to accept the risk to your systems.
