    If you use Citrix’s GoToMyPC remote desktop access service, you need to change your password. According to a post published to GoToMyPC’s system status page, the service experienced a hack attack this weekend, and it’s now requiring all users to reset their passwords before logging in to the service.

    “Unfortunately, the GoToMYPC service has been targeted by a very sophisticated password attack,” the update reads. “To protect you, the security team recommended that we reset all customer passwords immediately.”
