This may be of interest to those who use this programme.

It is not a vulnerability therefore it is not on the Flexera database.

I do not use this type of programme so have published "as is" for general information.

Hello Maurice ,

Thank you for this important disclosure . Whilst the Cisco Talos report is very concerning , this update on BleepingComputer is also very helpful and , for me , clarifies 32 and 64 bit differences and that "normal" updating to version 5.34 should resolve the problem - according to Avast/Piriform :-

What next ??

Take care

Anthony

Anthony,
Nice to hear from you. Your submission from Bleeping Computer is an easy to understand read and should clear up any questions users have.

I know many CCleaner fans who do not use PSI so I will pass on your link to them. Thank you.

What next? Perhaps in the near future I will stop being idle and send you a long overdue return email.

In the interim stay safe.
