Hello bleepingcomputer!
I am tech guy of my family as many of us are. My mother and grandmother often call me with problems they are having with their computer. As I am not able to see their computer most of the time when helping them, I have been using remote control software such as logmein.com to be able to provide better 'tech support'. The question I have for you guys concerns how secure these programs are. I have read the security information on the sites but of course they will try and make it sound as good as possible. Do you guys have any thoughts on how secure services like this are?

I use TeamViewer whenever I connect to a remote machine and find it an excellent utility.

Seems to be very secure. You can check for yourself here -
