No spam involved

Thinking that because you only go to music websites, install music software are free from risk is imho ostrich head in the ground technique
CCleaner isn’t music software is it?

Like I said - I’m not suggesting everything is safe, but that’s more a knock-on situation - avast’s security wasn’t up to scratch, and they were the ones targeted.

But - how is that different to downloading on a different machine, copying across and installing? Or downloading on your main machine, taking it offline and installing? Either way it gets infected (or either way you scan it and find the issue).
