A lot of cyberattacks start with installation of LogMeIn. According to 2016 Verizon Data Breach Investigation Report (DBIR), a very common tactic used by intruders involves installation of remote control software . Quite a few registered attacks used email phishing techniques asking users to call an IT helpdesk to resolve a certain problem. When those users called a fictitious helpdesk, the cybercriminals picked up on the phone. Sounding very professionally, they asked users to install LogMeIn as the first step. Giving them installation URLs, they walked users through installation and then effectively took control of their computers as a stepping stone to accessing corporate files stored on a corporate network.

EXE (‘executable’) files, such as join.me.exe, are files that contain step-by-step instructions that a computer follows to carry out a function.
