[excerpt quote=\"
In September, security researchers at Cisco Talos and Morphisec made a
worst nightmare-type disclosure: the ubiquitous computer cleanup tool
CCleaner had been compromised by hackers for more than a month. The
software updates users were downloading from CCleaner owner Avast—a
security company itself—had been tainted with a malware backdoor. The
incident exposed millions of computers and reinforced the threat of
so-called digital supply chain attacks, situations where trusted, widely
distributed software is actually infected by malicious code.
