Random connection attempts on Ubuntu 20.04 LTS


Lately I've been getting random connection requests to my Linux workstation (Ubuntu 20.04.1 LTS x86_64, Linux kernel 5.4.0-58-generic, TeamViewer 15.13.6). They're rejected, but it's annoying to see the TeamViewer window every so often, especially when I have to manually quit every single time.

Is somebody trying to hack into my workstation?

    Hi @wileamyp,

    I’m sorry to hear about the issue you were experiencing.

    Please have a look at this article about TeamViewer and Scamming. You can report what happened to you via this page.

    Please also ensure a change of the TeamViewer password for incoming connections both for the random password and your password for unattended access (If you have set it up).
