Piriform – Security Notification for CCleaner v5.33.6162 and CCleaner Cloud v1.07.3191 for 32-bit Windows users

You might have read or heard about a security problem with CCleaner. We have recommended CCleaner for years and continue to do so.

This particular problem ONLY affected users who might have downloaded a copy a Windows copy of the program during a specific time frame (late August to early September). The products compromised are used by only folks using the oldest computers and operating systems OR if you tried their “cloud version” (which I don’t currently recommend).

Either way, if you want to make sure that you do NOT have a problem version, download and install the latest version from here.
