We have one that I know of who still uses Teamviewer. The rest of us use Bomgar or Remote Desktop.

I suspect it's only a matter of time.

If you use teamviewer DO NOT ignore this thread. Change your password immediately, uninstall it, take TV off of autostart, do whatever you need to do to protect yourself. They are making some security changes to their software but in the meantime protect yourself. I know because I got hacked and had some fraudulent paypal transactions done from my PC. After almost two weeks of going back and forth with paypal and the vendors they did refund me. Some people may not be so lucky.
