Do you have remote support software TeamViewer installed on your desktop?

If yes, then you should pay attention to a critical vulnerability discovered in the software that could allow users sharing a desktop session to gain complete control of the other’s PC without permission.

TeamViewer is a popular remote-support software that lets you securely share your desktop or take full control of other’s PC over the Internet from anywhere in the world.
