Last week, I warned you about the Ccleaner installer delivering malware. At the time, researchers had only analyzed the first stage malware payload, and had sink-holed the malware’s command and control channel, making it ineffective. However, since then they have dissected the second stage of the attack, and found that it’s a very targeted and sophisticated threat. They believe the malware authors are trying to steal intellectual property from big companies. Watch my latest video for more details about these recent findings.
