The Program You Probably Have That Has Given You a Virus

A piece of software that has been downloaded by two million people has had a virus slipped into it by hackers.

According to Metro Online, the legitimate software ‘CCleaner’ which cleans up junk programs and advertising cookies to speed up devices has had the malicious program hidden inside.

Security researchers at Cisco’s Talos unit recommends users who have downloaded the software recently, to uninstall and reinstall it!

According to a spokeswoman, 2.27 million users had downloaded the August version of CCleaner.
