I just checked my PC, I have it but luckily the 64 bit one... I'm scanning now ...Last day I installed Kaspersky Free for a try. After updating it I did run a full system and the AV didn't flagged any files as malware. Since I uninstalled Kaspersky and switched back to BD Free I cannot do a scan again.
Since I have the problematic Ccleaner533.exe I now analysed it through VirusTotal and the result is shocking indeed:
Hi they taking down the CnC servers.CCleaner and installing avast with out permission...I just checked my PC, I have it but luckily the 64 bit one... I'm scanning now ...
Incredible that Avast still doesn't detect it on VT!...on 19 September!
I know but still prefer to scan...btw, it took them 1 month to detect it and to took down the C&c server.. what did it then do, "just" spying/collecting infos?Hi they taking down the CnC servers.CCleaner and installing avast with out permission...
I totally agrre on that.Well when this poll reflects the general opinion, this blooper flushed half of the sum of money Avast paid for Piriform down the drain.
CFO of Avast can write off half of the Piriform Investment.
You hit the "reality" nail right on the head.Many security products have been hacked before but people still trust them and of course they are using them.
So why not the same with CCleaner?
