Malware in CCleaner
Many people (including us) use CCleaner. It’s a relatively easy way to keep Windows clean and running well.
Because it’s such a popular program (downloaded over 2 bil times), it’s a target for hackers.
Apparently, hackers were able to put malware into the official, signed, version of CCleaner. That’s quite an exploit.
Luckily, allegedly, the company was able to disarm the threat before it became more of a headache.
Just goes to show that almost no program is 100% safe.
