CCleaner is Hacked and This is What You Need to Do

Piriform CCleaner is an optimization software that has been hacked a few days ago. This is a really popular software that over 2 million users have it in their PC or Mac computers.

With the latest hack, CCleaner can infect every single computer with a malicious software that can steal information, computer names and IP addresses from its users.

Techadvisor.co.uk confirms that Piriform is denying any kind of bleach but with all the latest internet security attacks you never know the truth.

The infected version is the 5.33.6162 (32bit). Piriform has already updated the cloud version and the standard version to 5.34. CCleaner is a really great software and does regular updates for this exact reason.

This is what you need to do:

  1. Remove/uninstall the old version.
  2. Download CCleaner latest version from the official website.
  3. Install a good anti-malware software to scan your computer for malware.

When you’re done, you will enjoy the benefits of CCleaner again, without any worries!
