Default Avast CC Cleaner Infected

For those folks that downloaded CC Cleaner recently, be aware that recent official signed downloads are infected by malware.

Pretty damn embarrassing for Avast.

Default Re: Avast CC Cleaner Infected

Just to be clear, it was only the 32 bit version, NOT the 64 bit version. It has also been updated already to 5.34 for a few days now.

Scared me when I read it this morning. After not having updated ccleaner in months, I updated recently. Thankfully it was 5.34.
