Trojan.Floxif attached to legit home version of CCleaner

Recommended Posts

The previous thread I noticed for this was closed mentioning a user was infected by this trojan prior to getting updated signatures from Malwarebytes. I'm happy to report that Malwarebytes did detect this Trojan!

Here's what happened on my Win 7 SP1 64 bit system. 1st, I noticed ccleaner wasn't running anymore in my  system tray or otherwise. I noticed it also wasn't showing up under add/remove for some reason? The folder for the software with all the files was still intact and had two executables. One was named 64 bit and when I double clicked to launch the software Malwarebytes popped up and flagged the file and quarantined! So, thanks for the save on this one! The only reason I launched the files was because the ccleaner blog said it didn't affect 64bit home users and was target toward commercial/industry. So, not sure why cclean professional I paid for downloaded the executable with the trojan malware?  Must of been version 5.33.6162.

Here's a screen shot from Malwarebytes log.
