    Exclamation TeamViewer Hacked and Customer's Bank Accounts Emptied

    If you use TeamViewer and save passwords on your computer, you should check your bank account now. Hackers have found a vulnerability in the software, and have been using it to access computers late at night to either empty bank accounts, or install ransomware. While the service is now offline, you should close TeamViewer just to be safe. The company has simply stated that they are having network difficulties in a tweet.

    Is that only the free version that was hacked or was the business, premium and corporate versions also hacked? I never even heard of teamviewer, and just as well. I don't have my pc remember any of my passwords for anything. My phone is a bit different, but try to limit the passwords that it does remember.

    There was no specification, but I think it was anyone with an account.

    I think that it applies to all versions, but of course premium and corporate versions,especially corporate shows that you have money .So i think that free versions are most secure,but not safety of course,because vulnerability affects all.

    I saw a post at this website http://wccftech.com/teamviewer-hack-...-are-affected/, tells you how you can determine if your teamviewer account has been compromised.
