For those that have recently downloaded or updated CCleaner for Windows on a 32-bit system, be sure to update immediately, as they unknowingly distributed malware for roughly a month. The VP from Piriform, the company that creates and distributes CCleaner, has released a blog post describing the incident.

Currently, they are not sure how the code appeared in the software, but they are conducting a thorough investigation.
