Posted September 18, 2017 by

Creeping Virus Infecting a PCThe popular Windows “junk” cleanup tool and PC optimizer CCleaner has been found to have malware implanted inside it.  The exploit could allow remote control of a PC that is running the infected version of the software.  Users are advised to upgrade to the latest version of the software.  Ensure that you download the software directly from Piriform’s website.  The infected versions of the software are CCleaner v5.33.6162 and CCleaner Cloud v1.07.3191.

Yes, even security companies and security tools are vulnerable to hackers and infections it seems.  This is why it is so important to have multiple layers of security, strong employee PC security training and multiple locations/copies of backups of all of your data and systems.  If this seems like a never ending or daunting task, call the experts at Excalibur Technology.  We make security and all types of IT support easy!
