CCleaner Security Alert

A major Security Alert has been issued warning of malware contained in the installer of the free CCleaner system cleaning utility. Piriform, makers of CCleaner, have confirmed that the affected version is CCleaner 5.33, available from 15 August 2017 to 12 September 2017. Importantly, Piriform says the malware only affects Windows 32-bit users. If you’ve installed version 5.33, you should upgrade to the latest Version 5.34.6207 of CCleaner or newer. If you believe you’ve been infected, at present the only way to be sure of removing the infection is to do a Windows reinstall or restore from an unaffected backup.

The Division will be free to play this weekend

It’s free from September 14-17 and pre-loads open today.

Third-person shooter The Division will be free to play in its entirety this weekend. Running from September 14-17, the base game, including the campaign and Dark Zone, will open up to anyone curious enough to give Massive’s post-disaster romp in New York a late tour.

 

Access kicks off September 14th at 7 pm CEST and closes out September 17th at 10 pm CEST, but you’ll be able to pre-load in the Uplay client starting today at 6 pm CEST.
