After Hack, Registry-Cleaning App CCleaner Infected Users With Malware

Recommended Posts


They said it wasn't stealing passwords or financial stuff, just names and purchases and stuff. Maybe just making a point? I used to use their online scanner. Not the same thing, but still it made me stop and think how much we trust these guys.

There's been further analysis of some payloads delivered after the C&C was installed.

Interestingly the array specified contains Cisco's domain (cisco.com) along with other high-profile technology companies. This would suggest a very focused actor after valuable intellectual property.

These new findings raise our level of concern about these events, as elements of our research point towards a possible unknown, sophisticated actor. These findings also support and reinforce our previous recommendation that those impacted by this supply chain attack should not simply remove the affected version of CCleaner or update to the latest version, but should restore from backups or reimage systems to ensure that they completely remove not only the backdoored version of CCleaner but also any other malware that may be resident on the system.
