Heads up: Malware found in Piriform’s CCleaner installer

If we commissioned a giveaway chronicle of CCleaner after Aug. 15, a integrate of nasty programs came along for a ride. Talos Intelligence, a multiplication of Cisco, usually published a damning account of malware that it found stealing in a installer for CCleaner 5.33, a chronicle that was expelled on Aug. 15 and which, according to Talos, was still a primary download on a central CCleaner page on Sept. 11.

After notifying Piriform, CCleaner was, ahem, spotless adult and chronicle 5.34 seemed on Sept. 12.

I usually checked, and a stream chronicle accessible from Piriform is chronicle 5.34. (Piriform was bought by antivirus hulk Avast in July.)
