The outcome of the Notorious Teamviewer hack

Over the past few months, the users of Teamviewer, a remote access service have been discussing their experience of being ransacked by attackers, who somehow gained access to their accounts. In many of the cases, online thefts reportedly drained user’s PayPal and other bank accounts. No one knows the exact number of accounts being hacked yet, but there’s no denying that the Teamviewer is breached.

For more than a month, many social media sites and blogs have received such numerous reports. Many often claimed that the intrusions are the reason for this failure, which has an effect on many others.

The attacker did transactions and shopped online using user’s PayPal and bank details, many caught this and rolled back the transactions but many left helpless. Nick Bradley the Security Researcher at IBM reported his experience, “In the middle of my gaming session, I lose control of my mouse and the Teamviewer window pops up in the bottom right corner of my screen, As soon as I realize what is happening, I kill the application. Then it dawns on me: I have other machines running Teamviewer!”
