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.
For a remote session to work both computers—the client (presenter) and the server (viewer)—must have the software installed, and the client has to share a secret authentication code with the person he wants to share his desktop.
However, a GitHub user named “Gellin” has disclosed a vulnerability in TeamViewer that could allow the client (sharing its desktop session) to gain control of the viewer’s computer without permission.
