TeamViewer and remote access

Some of you may have read a recent story about possible security problems concerning TeamViewer, for example:
There are a number of supported remote access technologies in the Department, as described at
Our recommended method for remotely connecting to Windows computers is to use our VPN service and then use Remote Desktop. For remotely connecting to Linux computers, please see our documentation on using VNC.
The advantage of using the recommended Departmental services rather than 3rd-party services such as TeamViewer is that it ensures that all of your network traffic is transmitted only through trusted Departmental servers rather than through a potentially unknown 3rd party.
