I was hacked by teamviewer

I was hacked by teamviewer

I have 2 teams in my house connected to teamviewer, but today I realize that all my bank accounts and my BTC platforms were stolen by an intruder who joined my teams through TeamViewer.

2 hours hard connection and in that I steal all my money.

When looking at the record of activities on the platform, it becomes clear that while I am sleeping, someone enters my PC from a device that is not associated with my account without the need of any verification or authorization.
It should be noted that I have never assigned income to any device that is not associated with my account.

ID **Please do not post TeamViewer IDs**  NAME:G06S34

I have all the logs of the connections.

Re: I was hacked by teamviewer

Hi @Diegoloncho,

I am sorry to hear what happened to you!

Please go to this page to find more information about scamming incl. a link to report the scam

On top of that please read this reply to get even more information. Let me cite from this reply:

"We strongly recommend that affected victims contact their bank, a consumer protection organization and a trustworthy IT support company. In most cases, the payments that have been made can be refunded by the bank, and any malicious software installed by the callers can be removed by the IT support company. We can also determine and block the TeamViewer ID used by the scammers if we are provided with the victim's ID.

To ensure that it is safe to use your computer again (for example, for online banking), we recommend having it checked by a local IT support company or a person you can trust."

Also please make sure to change the TeamViewer password for incoming connections both for the random password and your password for unattended access.

How to change for the random password: 

If you would like to change the random password manually you can hover with the mouse over the password field and a circle-arrow appears. Click the arrow and choose Create new random password

How to change your password for unattended access:

The personal password is a password defined by you. If you enter a password, you will be able to use that password anytime in place of the randomly generated temporary password to access this computer (unattended access). 

Under Extras --> Options --> Security--> Under Personal password (for unattended access) --> Password --> Type in your password --> Confirm password  Repeat your chosen password to confirm it --> click OK

The password you are choosing will never be visible to you or anybody else. Instead of the password you will see black dots. 

You can remove the password by deleting the black dots.
