CCleanup: A Vast Number of Machines at Risk Anonymous 09/18/2017 (Mon) 12:59:11 [Preview] No. 11173
The article points as Periform/Avast had no idea about this malware... I don't think so. I don't think it's impossivel that this is an malware sponsored by agencies, since CCleaner is used on so many normie computers today:

Who's agencies?
Microsoft certainly already share everything with the agencies.
Windows 10 is the biggest malware ever.

All I see is that they maybe tried to hide their own backdoor, or maybe it's a CCleaner dev who tried to push his own malware in the back of his team.

I have a very old version of Cclearner, downloaded it 10 years ago. Hopefully that one is not infected. BTW, Bleachbit works find too.

Avast's antivirus was already malware. It will miss your actual virus email attachments but identify anything downloaded from a domain registered less than three months ago as a virus. Avast's logic is that if a domain is newly registered, then it must be distributing viruses. Avast does serve as an example of something that harms because it's worse than useless though.

Are antivirus software applications still relevant? LOL
