  1. 7-zip can do it in the context menu (does SHA-1 and SHA-256, but not md5 -- but who uses md5 any more these days?) Sigcheck from sysinternals can also do it (command line only). It also does a better job of checking digital signatures than the windows interface.

  3. running as administrator on user

    Ok, I understand now. It won't let you mange load on start commands specific to your account (which you should have control over as a non-admin) and when it makes you elevate to admin (run as another user) it no longer shows start up items specific to your account. You should have enough rights to manage almost everything that only loads under your account, but ccleaner (wrongly?) assumes you don't and makes you run as admin (elevate). Can you post some screenshots of this?
  4. running as administrator on user

    Open a command prompt like you were going to launch the program from the command line. Run this command: set __COMPAT_LAYER=RUNASINVOKER Then try to run CCleaner via that command prompt window. This will suppress it from trying to run as admin. I have not tried this my self for ccleaner but it has worked for other programs.
  5. Any guarantee about the safety of the software now?

    Nothing is, driving for example. But these attackers had 600,000+ computers they could infect, the chose only 20 (at various large businesses) so they could steal from them. They'd have to be pretty stupid to try to infect ccleaner again (with all the scrutiny), they may have already stolen what they wanted (or not) if they attack again it will be in a new an surprising way, maybe similar maybe not. Want a safety net? Wait 4 months after you download something to install it (and scan it before you do). As long as the program has no critical security updates this will give other a chance to check things out first. Of course this doesn't work when a program has a critical security update...
  6. ccleaner icon on windows 10 not working

    Weird, I wonder would could have garbled / set to deny the NTFS permissions?
  7. The revoked certificate still being used in CCleaner Cloud

    I see. I guess since this process signs installers in real time (with user adjustments like install times limits, and installer expiration) more care is needed to re-implement then simply swapping out the key. I wasn't sure if this overlooked since it didn't seem to be documented anywhere.

  9. contradictory info on smart

    I wouldn't trust that drive, get your data backed up. It lost 161 sectors (which may or may not have contained something important) and replaced them with spares. There's one sector it can't read right now (not replaced with a spare). And there were (or are) 6 sectors that not only it can't read, it can't even figure out where they are located on the disk surface. This drive should have failed a SMART self test in the past (if one was ever run by the user), and should still fail even now (it will start passing if it reallocates some bad sectors, but that's no reason to start trusting the drive again). The drive has not exceeded the smart thresholds so it's not saying "I've failed" yet. Most bad drives actually fail before they reach that stage. (or are so bad as to be unusable and NEVER reach the stage where they call themselves 'bad')
  10. CCleaner and UAC

    I'm not sure about the rest of them, but the "Run As Administrator" is doing exactly what one would expect. Every time you run it (not even trying to run as admin) it tries to run as admin, which means it prompts you. The only way to bypass this is the scheduled task (which I think is an option in the program).
  11. For this threat there was little or no distinction between the portable version and the installed version. Since you didn't specific details as to your usage I am making a few guesses. You used the 32-bit version out of the portable package "CCleaner.exe" vs "CCleaner64.exe", you did so before September 16th, you were connected to the internet at the time. Which means it's possible for stage 2.
  12. The registry traces are irrelevant, they only traces left behind by early stage malware action. After the fact they are just traces. Worry about the intruder, don't worry about his footprints. The registry traces don't try to connect to the (offline) malware server, the program itself does. If you didn't leave behind the portable version it isn't still trying to connect to the disabled malware server.
  13. Depends on which version you used, when you used it, and if the computer had an internet connection at the time. Refer back to this rough outline from my previous post: https://forum.piriform.com/index.php?showtopic=48869&page=11&do=findComment&comment=286985 Also an update the second line labeled "Note A1" appears to be improbable. For the portable version you can ignore anywhere it says "installed".
  14. Can you positively identify tampered and untampered files for me?

    No, I was trying to get direct clear answers about all the files tied to this incident (not just that they were related to this issue, how they were related). I think I have most of my questions answered most of the way as of my last post. I was trying to rule out #2 to some extent and to be clear on which files were affected so one could tell for sure if they were affected. I still wonder a little bit about the auto update prompt getting stuck on even in the free version right before this incident. Anyway, thank you for your time and sorry to bother you with questions I wanted to get very specific answers to but may not have asked you adequate clarity.
  15. Can you positively identify tampered and untampered files for me?

    It appears that "CCleanerCloudAgent.exe" is the main exe file for that version. But it seems that all 3 of the internal programs that come CCleanerCloud were infected including "CCleanerCloudAgentHealtCheck.exe" and "CCleanerCloudTray.exe". Apparently the payload in the cloud version was created slightly later and was adjusted to run even without administrative privileges. I wonder when the bug that caused all version to prompt to auto-update regardless of the setting (even the free version -- which doesn't auto update) was introduced? SHA256 hash of files I am only wondering about: 0564718B3778D91EFD7A9972E11852E29F88103A10CB8862C285B924BC412013 (tampered -- contains tampered file) -- auto updater even for free version? 0D4F12F4790D2DFEF2D6F3B3BE74062AAD3214CB619071306E98A813A334D7B8 (tampered, contains payload?) 9C205EC7DA1FF84D5AA0A96A0A77B092239C2BB94BCB05DB41680A9A718A01EB (tampered, contains payload?)
