Just in case any one has installed CCleaner please update to the latest version now. Piriform announced that CCleaner v5.33.6162 and CCleaner Cloud v1.07.3191 had been compromised and encourage users to update to v5.35.
If you have an infected version then uninstall it, perform an antivirus scan (don't forget to scan your backups), and, if you use CCleaner, install the latest version.

As I understand it, if you had the rogue version installed, this is a very difficult fix.
It's not a matter of just updating CCleaner.
