More than 2 million Windows users may be at risk: Maintenance app CCleaner was hacked and used to deliver malware to unsuspecting computers and Android devices, according to a Monday report from Cisco Talos.
CCleaner is an app from Piriform, a company which was recently purchased by Avast, that allows users to perform routine machine maintenance, cleaning temporary files and managing installed applications. It boasted over 2 billion total downloads at the end of 2016, and a growth rate of 5 million additional users per week. Both a free version and a business version of the app are available.
If you used CCleaner software to clean up your device, you may have infected yourself instead
