    I'm confused. We are being told (not by TeamViewer it seems but by third part security information providers) that 15.8.3 for your Windows version is needed to prevent the CVE-2020-13699 exploit.

    Critical problems TeamViewer needs to address:

    1. As customers you should be keeping us appraised of such serious vulnerabilities.

    2. You should also keep us appraised of updates that you release to address such serious vulnerabilities.

    3. This change log doesn't even appear to mention this vulnerability.

    4. For a remote support services system provider TeamViewer really needs to pick up its security game, especially as remote working is rapidly becomming the new normal in a post COVID-19 world.

    hi @EST 

    regards this one -> 

    • Licensed customers can now opt-out of in-product marketing messages. Important in-product messages like EULA updates will still be received.

    is that possible to untick this options but without login to tv account. i noticed the options is greyed out if users not logged in. i was using MSI installer for our organization. that my understanding that should be unticked.

    another question. is the blue ribbon saying that: free for non-commercial use on the top, as soon as we installed the new version. can it be get rid as well for MSI installer in our organization?

    How to deploy disabling in-product marketing messages via GPO or Registry on Windows?

    Hello @Lexo,

    It is not possible to deploy this parameter as it is not device-based, but account-based.

    Therefore, every user will have to make this change for himself.

    Alternatively, you can also deploy custom modules, as there are no ads in custom modules:

    Here is how to create the custom full version:

    Here is how to deploy it:
