Re: Clarification-No Breach
Personally I consider at the lowest level unauthorized access a "breach" but you're right that in this case, what we typically call a breach - exposure of data, infestation - doesn't seem to have occurred.  Perhaps the breach spin is good, however, as it raises awareness of a weak network and security policy that likely encouraged a quick change in security processes by TeamViewer.  It also raises awareness - in security there is no "old news" as some readers may mistake this to be; any company that may have trojans or other compromising code hidden in its products needs to step up and convince us otherwise.  The question here is have they convinced us?

Clarification-No Breach
From the Read More: " found no evidence that customer data or other sensitive information had been stolen".... As such it would be a security incident and not a breach. Still alarming but not as detrimental to brand reputation based on how the company dealt with that incident.

Suspect indeed
For the past two years, our department has waged a campaign against Teamviewer because it was judged in-secure and now this article verifies our actions.  Remove it from all endpoints and systems.
