A very popular computer cleanup utility, CCleaner, has been compromised with malware (https://www.wired.com/story/ccleaner-malware-targeted-tech-firms/). We also use this software during computer cleanups, and wanted to provide an update on how we’re managing this threat:
- Webroot, the computer security endpoint protection we use and recommend, detects and stops this malware (as we’ve been seeing more alerts recently)
- We’ve proactively pushed out an automated uninstall to all ProActive subscribers (managed clients), to uninstall this software from your system
If you have any further questions on this threat, please don’t hesitate to ask.
