Teamviewer breach??

Many folks on other forums reporting their systems compromised via access with Teamviewer...

Many claim were using good passwords, implying a possible breach of TV account user password database....

For those that use this, I'd empty your account password database and remove the service from assorted systems until this is ironed out!

On top of a possible database breach, there is also a fake adobe flash update containing a hostile teamviewer patch/payload piece of malware out there as well....BEWARE!
