RE: Malware Injected Into CCleaner

Yeah, it's really scary stuff. I read a few sources about it. Thanks for putting it here to be sure folks know. I don't know how in the world we're supposed to prepare for something like that. Everything seemed legit until thankfully someone found the issue.

Seems like something engineered by a country for infiltration into tech companies for espionage purposes. This is not created by some kid in a basement.
