    GoToMyPC decided to reset user passwords after attackers tried to hack into customer accounts over the weekend using what the company calls a "very sophisticated password attack."

    GoToMyPC is a service that allows users remote access to their home or work computers using a suite of desktop and mobile apps. The service is similar to TeamViewer and is managed by IT firm Citrix, who also runs the more popular GoToMeeting service.

    First Teamviewer now GoToMyPC. It looks like attackers found new way to access remote systems and get control over them.
