If you have been following the news, you will have seen that CCleaner has been hit by Malware, and anyone who has downloaded the specific version is likely to have also unknownly installed one or more Malware programs on their machines.  The affected version, at this time, appears to be: v5.33.6162

The outbreak is much worse than originally thought with secondary infections now found to have come via the update.

Original reports claimed that the infection could easily be removed simply by upgrading to the newest version of CCleaner that was released after the hack was found.  Security experts, however, are now saying that due to the discovery of secondary infections the attack was much worse than originally thought, and all users that have been affected should restore their machines from an earlier backup to ensure complete removal of the infections.
