PostSubject: Spyware, Malware Information    Tue Sep 19, 2017 7:26 am

The company that makes CCleaner, Avast's Piriform, announced that its free software was infected with malware. If you use CCleaner, here's what you need to know.

Who was infected?

According to Piriform, around 3 percent -- roughly 2.27 million computers -- used the infected software. Specifically, computers running 32-bit Windows 10. If that applies to you, don't panic. The company believes that they were able to disarm the malware before any harm was done. 

How do I know if I have the corrupted version?

The versions that were affected are CCleaner v5.33.6162 or CCleaner Cloud v1.07.3191 for 32-bit Windows PCs. The Android version for phones doesn't seem to be affected.
If you've updated your software since September 12, you should be OK. This is when the new, uncorrupted version was released. Also, if you have the Cloud version, it should have automatically updated itself by now to the clean version.

I don't use the cloud version. What should I do?

CCleaner v5.33.6162 does not update on its own, so if you use the non-cloud version you may have the corrupted software. Piriform recommends deleting your current version and downloading a clean version from its website.

After you have your new software downloaded, run a check on your system using malware protection software to be sure that CCleaner didn't leave any nasty invaders behind.

If you, like so many others are struggling with a lot of Spyware on your computer; do yourself a favour and download the FREE program called SuperAntiSpyware! It's brilliant and even picks up spyware that Malwarebytes does not.

Highly recommend this program
