Thanks. This is really creepy news. I had that version on my machines for an entire month. Well, actually I didn't have the one that was hacked; I was using the Windows 64-bit version! :roll:

Happily, the Piriform blog article mitigates the situation quite a bit. If you can take it at face value, the problem was restricted to 32-bit Windows machines. All-in-all, though the whole thing isn't super reassuring.

In any case, if you haven't already done so, it appears everyone should update to CCleaner 5.34.6207.

Just a little headsup — here's a permanent Piriform link that carries the slim version which is never bundled with crapware:—

Thank you.

There are many alternatives to eating ice cream, and some of them are much better for you, but I like ice cream. :roll:
