CCleaner, the incredibly popular PC maintenance utility, has been hacked to include malware. Here’s how to tell if you were affected, and what you should do.

Thankfully, it looks like this malware only affected a certain subset of CCleaner users. In particular, it affected:

Users running the 32-bit version of the application (not the 64-bit version)
Users running version 5.33.6162 of CCleaner or CCleaner Cloud 1.07.3191, released on August 15th, 2017
