    Please check your computers as they might be affected by a malware. I have seen a lot of my friends complaining about this.

    This is awfully vague and potentially dangerous if not understood correctly.

    You might be talking of the case where CCleaner was actually DISTRIBUTING malware due to someone managing to infect their download server.

    I.e. it would be best NOT to download CCleaner from any mirror at this point but only from the source that's been cleaned by now.

    Or not at all - I find “cleaner” apps to cause more problems than they solve, Ccleaner, included.
