I can imagine, if more and more people are using easy to use remote desktop software, then the cybercriminals are of course also trying to missuse those applications for there business.

The trick is to be aware when it’s being misused. Unfortunately, that can be quite a difficult trick…

I’m using Teamviewer 6 now on all computers in LAN at home and use Teamviewer a lot to help friends who have computer problems. Or is only Teamviewer version 5 effected by this virus?
