Reply To: 23 Sep 17 – Do you still use CCleaner?
So lets start with this:
“The attacker added malware to the CCleaner 5.33.6162 and CCleaner Cloud 1.07.3191 installers, but the malware only executed on 32-bit systems and when run by a user with admin rights.”
Yes. Well it happened. It should not have happened. BUT, How many times has this happened since CCleaner became available to the masses ? So please, do not persecute Piriform or Avast over this additional malware that was included with that version.
CCleaner remains my #1 favorite application and I am not going to quit using it because of the recent issue. I also use CCEnhancer that is integrated with CCleaner. Daily.
The best bet is to use the Slim version that usually is released a bit over a week later as each new build is released. Many people prefer using the Portable version also.
