News broke today that CCleaner v5.33 is compromised and the version was "tainted with a backdoor installed in the tool".
My questions are
1. Does it mean versions prior to 5.33 are safe (i.e. no backdoor program installed) ????
2. In general, Is a "program update" equal to "downloading the latest program from scratch" ? (i.e. If I have a CCleaner v.4 and it continues to get updated regularly, when v5 is released and I update my v4 with the latest update patch, is my v4 now identical to my uninstall-v4-install-v5)
