Avast's CCleaner being used by hackers. Hackers-Arise finds crypto-currency attacks linked to Av

Updated: Dec 31, 2022

Almost two weeks ago, as part of a forensic investigation for our client, we discovered crypto-currency attacks coming from Avast AV. Avast's attorneys used their clout to force our website offline this past weekend to keep the word from getting out. We had to remove the article to get Hackers-Arise back online or face a long legal battle against a much stronger financial and lawyered Avast corporation.

Now, Cisco has found that Avast's CCleaner was doing exactly the same thing we reported earlier. You can read about it at Reuters.

Good luck trying to keep Cisco quiet Avast!
