GoToMyPc leak causes password rest

GoToMyPC is a popular tool for people to obtain remote access to home and work computers via a web browser.

It has emerged that GoToMyPC has been breached and the attackers used login names and passwords found in other data breaches to get at GoToMyPC accounts.


GoToMyPC owner Citrix confirmed reports of the attack in a statement and said “login credentials leaked from other sites had been used to get at accounts of its users.”

In response, Citrix said it had done a “mandatory password reset” for all its users.

“We encourage our members to enable two-step verification, and to use strong passwords in order to keep their accounts as safe as possible,” it added. GoToMyPC software is available in consumer, pro and enterprise versions
