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.

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:
