Default Glary Utilities no longer contains virus

A search did not show that this has been mentioned.

For anyone that missed it, Glary Utilities was infected by a virus last month. It has been updated, but you will want to make certain you have the latest, uninfected, version. The latest is v2.16.0.758 and was released on September 18.

I heard about this as well and have updated my versions. I kept thinking the alerts were false and it is a little disturbing to hear that they weren't. I think they said it had something to do with the development environment.

Their Delphi development environment was infected with malware that would add a virus to any program that was created -- including Glary Utilities.

I would highly recommend subscribing to a security RSS feed that alert on issues like this: H Online:
