If you have downloaded or updated CCleaner application on your computer between August 15 and September 12 of this year from its official website, then pay attention—your computer has been compromised.
CCleaner is a popular application with over 2 billion downloads, created by Piriform and recently acquired by Avast, that allows users to clean up their system to optimize and enhance performance.
Security researchers from Cisco Talos discovered that the download servers used by Avast to let users download the application were compromised by some unknown hackers, who replaced the original version of the software with the malicious one and distributed it to millions of users for around a month.

In September 2017, CCleaner v5.33 (32-bit Windows) was compromised with a backdoor in the software, enabling remote access of 2.27 million[25] infected machines.[26][27] On September 13, Piriform released CCleaner 5.34 and CCleaner Cloud 1.07.3191 that do not contain the malicious code.
