TeamViewer GmbH was founded in 2005 in Göppingen, Germany. UK-based private equity firm Permira acquired it GmbH from Durham, North Carolina-based software developer GFI Software in 2014. The company also hosts an online backup cloud service called Airbackup.
TeamViewer and similar services have been used to commit technical support scams via telephone calls. People are called, either at random or from a list, by criminals claiming to represent a computer support TeamViewer service which has identified the victim’s computer as being infected by malware, most often using the name of companies such as Microsoft.
They then ask the victim to give them access to their computer by installing a remote control service, which can allow the attacker to infect the computer with malware or to delete or copy personal files. it is also possible to access a machine running it with a web browser. While the main focus of TeamViewer is remote control of computers, collaboration and presentation features are included. A Wired journalist investigating the scams was asked by a scammer to install TeamViewer.
In March 2016, it was reported that a ransomware program named “Surprise” was exploiting TeamViewer as an infection channel, among other distribution methods.
In June 2016, hundreds of it users reported having their computers accessed by an unauthorized address in China and bank accounts misappropriated. it denied having been hacked directly, and their service went offline purportedly due to a denial-of-service attack.
In March 2017, UK ISP TalkTalk Group blocked the service to protect its customers from online scams. it remains blocked as of May, 2018.
