CCCleaner Hack spells danger for Windows 10 users
I had downloaded and installed the infected version of CCCleaner onto a Lenovo Laptop and wanted to remove it and clean up the system.
The laptop had a free version of Bit Defender AV installed so I updated the signature files and did a full system scan. It found nothing – about as useful as tit’s on a bull – but you get what you pay for I guess.
So I turned to my trusty Malwarebytes Anti-Rookit. Updated the signature files and ran a scan. It found the CCCleaner malware that had been installed no problem at all, plus the downloaded CCCleaner executable containing the infection. Malwarebytes are a class act in finding infections on a PC.
i’ll throw some coins in the air and the shortest straw loses!
