This site is running TeamViewer Port Scan Results

Below you'll find an old post that I made about the question "What is This site is running TeamViewer" about.

Updated: 5-3-2012

The first time I saw this was from one of my proxy scripts that is designed to test a connection if the connection was being used to launch SQL injection attacks.

In just over 460,000 reports the "This site is running TeamViewer" comes up in about 10% of them. Now, I'm not saying the hacked server was the TeamViewer server. It could have been from any number of things. It's just my proxy scan tests live connections for known ports of known exploits.

The question you should be asking is do you really need something that announces you have teamviewer running?

In what state or condition do you see the message This site is running TeamViewer. Is this a meta response to a probe? Is it a port response? If you know share your comments.

Check it out and tell me what you think.
The Servers are listed in the articles section.

Updated: The computer listed was running teamviewer but being remotely controlled by a bot network.

I read some gamers use Teamviewer to run games remotely.
This is most likely how things go wrong.
I'd suggest if you see this message

to just avoid it.
If a game system you should contact your game admin.
