“On Sunday, TeamViewer spokesman Axel Schmidt acknowledged to Ars that the number of takeovers was “significant,” but it continued to maintain that the compromises are the result of user passwords that were compromised through a cluster of recently exposed megabreaches involving more than 642 million passwords belonging to users of LinkedIn, MySpace, and other services.”

Whatever happened, or didn’t happen, you should maybe choose a new password and turn on two-factor authentication for TeamViewer. I know I have 2FA turned on!
