Due to the significance of this, I'm including a new thread to highlight this issue:-

CCleaner compromised to deliver malware

In particular, note what is stated at the end: "The Cisco Talos researchers recommended that affected systems - of which there could be thousands - should be restored to a state before August 15 2017 or reinstalled. However, they emphasised that updating to CCleaner version 5.34 does not fix the problem as the malware will remain on infected systems."

Apparently the problem did not affect 64 bit versions.

MJS WARLORD Piriform always lists the free version with no obligation to buy. There are 3 versions listed. Free, Professional and Professional Plus.
