    Well isn't that special. Thanks for posting this - I just updated to the newer CC version after reading the article you linked.

    I remember when I first stated using SuperAntiSpyware; it would update its definitions maybe once a week. Now it updates multiple times a day

    It would seem computers are becoming easier to hack and harder to protect.

    According to HowToGeek, it was the 32 bit version 5.33 that was compromised. Lucky I only have 64bit versions, and none have been updated to version 5.33 (and won't be!)

    Who needs spyware anymore ? Now you have Windows 10, which is the biggest and most efficient spyware ever.

    Indeed. I'm still working with 7/64 at this point and will hold on to it as long as I can.

    Thanks for the warning Dave. As the article already indicated this is somewhere where you least expect to get infected.

    Piriform Software just released a new version: V5.35.6210. I'm using the 64 bit version of CCleaner (Free). FYI.

    Although I use the 64-bits version of CCleaner, I still had the malware (Floxif.gen!A) on my PC. It looks like it hasn't done anything and 3 full scans later, I'm convinced my PC is clean again.

    Cheers,
    Huub
