#869 TeamViewer servers go down as users complain on Reddit about getting hacked
Something is happening with TeamViewers servers at the moment, and all clues point to a massive breach that has led to many users going on Reddit and complaining about having their computers hacked, some even reporting seeing new purchases in their PayPal accounts.

The problems started around noon today when users weren't able to connect to the TeamViewer network. A few hours later, the company's website also went down, but the team managed to bring it back online a few hours later.

Some users have reported finding new transactions in their PayPal and bank accounts, while others discovered someone had been poking around their email account.
