Supposedly infected machines will have this in their registry
HKLM\SOFTWARE\Piriform\Agomo

Very suspicious though that this happened the first update after Avast purchased Piriform

I just had an update today version v5.35.6210 (20 Sep 2017)
- All builds signed with new Digital Signatures

I was surprised to receive an important notification on Windows 10 about the update that was implemented with a simple click without having to manually go the website, download and save the update and then doubleclicking on the download.

Maybe Avast(the company that I also use for my AntiVirus) is making it more convenient to update as well.

BTW, I have the 64 bit Windows version, so hopefully I wasn't affected by the compromise.

I was surprised to learn it's actually owned by Avast, the antivirus company.


Yeah, I don't trust Avast ever since the program failed to find a keylogger (after multiple passes) on my system. Malwarebytes found it immediately. So this s*** from them doesn't surprise me one bit.
