CCleaner hacked

Recommended Posts

If you use CCleaner on your PC, run Windows Defender and Malwarebytes against your system. Piriform, the maker of CCleaner, had a recent update that was hacked, and a Backdoor: Floxif trojan was inserted. I'm sure they're very embarrassed about the situation. Pretty much all anti-virus and anti-malware services are now catching it.

Just a warning.

Thx! I use that app, but on a Mac. Am I ok?

You should be fine.  The Version I have is  5.35.6210 and has no issues with Windows Defender.  I would assume Piriform has corrected the issue. They just pull it from their Database and issue a newer one to replace it.
