Hi,

I am helping a friend of a friend whilst on holiday in Germany. He has been the subject of a "vishing" attack, ie bogus telephone callers made him install TeamViewer and give them the TeamViewer UserID and Password over the phone. Luckily he realised it was a scam when they started to ask for payment so he did not part with any money. I saw the laptop a few days later and immediatey removed the TeamViewer app. I am not sure for how long the laptop had been connected to the internet after the attack, so I am simply assuming it was vulnerable enough for the attackers to have compromised it if they wanted. However, there is no visible sign of any malware present and no scans have shown any signs of infection.

Please help.

Thanks!

I didn't find the right solution from the Internet.

Solution:

Don't listen to (and do) what anonymous people on the phone tell you to do.
