Cisco Talos security researchers detected the tainted CCleaner app last week while performing beta testing of a new exploit detection technology.About the same time, Morphisec reports receiving suspicious logs from several customers who installed the tainted apps, and immediately reached out to Avast.
Before you start to restore your i Phone, you should first back up the important files on it.At this part, we will show you two ways to back up your i Phone data, you can choose the preferred one according to your need. Launch the latest version of i Tunes on your computer and connect your i Phone to it with USB cable.

The easiest way to reach Catalin is via his XMPP/Jabber address at [email protected] I noticed that the new version failse and does not work. I ran an Avast full system scan which came up clean. Since the trojan remained undetected since the last CCleaner install in early September, some of my files may have been compromised. (I'm actually quite amazed that the trojan bypassed both Malwarebytes and Avast (both premium versions) upon download; they are supposed to be "in-line" at all times. ) I had the exact same scenario as what you've laid out here. Only thing I can think of as to why MWB didn't detect the Trojan.floxif prior is bc it was just recently identified after Sept.
For other contact methods, please visit Catalin's author page. Apparently my security software blocked malicious stuffing when the computer was online. Except that I updated my CCleaner on 8/3/17 and apparently it was infected THEN!
After scanning, you can see all types of files are listed in the interface. You are allowed to check the data one by one, then select and back up the valuable files to your computer by clicking "Recover" button.

The malware also had the ability to download and run other binaries, but at the time of writing, there is no evidence that Floxif downloaded additional second-stage payloads on infected hosts.
