CCleaner was hacked and used to deliver malware to unsuspecting computers and Android devices…

September 18, 2017

This morning I am catching up on the tech news and the one thing that is jumping out at me is the news that CCleaner was hacked and used to deliver malware to unsuspecting computers and Android devices. I drilled down on this more and based on information from Piriform (the developers of CCleaner), a suspicious activity was identified on September 12th, 2017, where Piriform saw an unknown IP address receiving data from software found in version 5.33.6162 of CCleaner, and CCleaner Cloud version 1.07.3191, on 32-bit Windows systems. Based on further analysis, they found that the 5.33.6162 version of CCleaner and the 1.07.3191 version of CCleaner Cloud was illegally modified before it was released to the public.

All CCleaner users are encouraged to update their CCleaner software to version 5.34 or higher. The latest version is available for download from here.

CCleaner has been around for years and years and is a “go to” utility that is used by millions to clean and optimize their PC’s in order to protect their privacy and make things faster. I personally have used it for many years.

A “Best Seller” and A “Best Deal” for The Memorial Day Weekend

May 28, 2017

Did you ever attempt to fix one of your electronic devices (computer or smartphone) or a pair of eyeglasses and find the screw is so small or it is a non-standard bit that you need special tools to get the screw out? This is where the  Oria 76-in-1 Precision Screwdriver Set with Magnetic Driver Kit may be helpful.

This kit includes a 60 in 1 magnetic screwdriver set, update 2 set for iPhone7, utility knife, Anti-Static Wrist Strap, Anti Static tweezers, SIM card ejector pin and LCD Suction Cup, Triangle plectrum, plastic spudgers, metal spudger,  and stainless steel Ruler; all nicely packaged in a well organized nylon tool pouch. This kit at Amazon is a “Best Seller” and currently, in my opinion, a “Best Deal” (with exceptional customer review ratings).
