CCleaner remove it directly from your computers

If you use CCleaner, be careful! The application is no longer the one you knew. Recent internet reports accuse Piriform (a subsidiary of Avast) of adding "malware", ads and more.

The CCleaner application is available in free and paid versions in all Windows, Mac and mobile devices.CCleaner

For those who don't know, CCleaner is one πρόγραμμα που χρησιμοποιείται για τον καθαρισμό ανεπιθύμητων (προσωρινά αρχεία που αποθηκεύονται από το διαδίκτυο) και τις μη έγκυρες καταχωρήσεις στο μητρώο των Windows.

But with the release of the latter As of 5.45, CCleaner says in the changelog that it has added a feature that will send Piriform “more detailed reports on bug fixes and product improvement.”

Obviously, those who read the changelog are not at all satisfied with the change that allows data collection,

In May, CCleaner said it would only collect anonymous data from users who have installed the free version, giving users the ability to disable the feature.

But the latest update (v5.45) of the free version of the app, the feature is impossible to stop working. CCleaner's AMH (from Active Monitoring and heartbeat) and the have been removed from the options of the free version of the program.

Worryingly enough, through Active Monitoring the company added data eavesdropping software () in the app to anonymously check usage analytics in order to notify users when spam is detected!

According to the application development company, heartbeat sends "completely non-personal, and unrecognizable user information to improve CCleaner".

The paradox; You can also turn off "Enable system tracking" and "Enable active tracking" from Options> Tracking. However, after a restart of the program or after a reboot of your system, the functions are activated again.

Also, if you click the x icon to quit CCleaner, the software does not close. The application continues to run in the background for most users and regularly sends its reports to Piriform.

  1. It's been a long time since another malware occurred after hacking (as reported by the company) in the same program.
    Given the current "problem", is it time to think that nothing (in the past problematic operation due to a virus, but also in today) is accidental?
    Simply put, did they want the company to do it, and they did it, invoking the first time hacking?

    Note: I personally do not believe in coincidences and "errors" especially in programs that "hit" and look at the root of a software registry (windows and android).
