    Someone hacked the servers some hours ago and released a r94 update which was actually a malware.
    Everyone who got the update should check their PCs.

    The makers of puush said to change your password if you did get the r94 update. And here's the scanner for the virus. https://www.dropbox.com/s/vtd0z5zhz8tkuut/puush_is_sorry.exe?dl=0

    One more thing, the exe virus is called puush.deamon.exe.

    Just in case someone is wondering what Puush is, it is a printscreen and image uploader program IIRC, AFAIK it got a pretty big userbase, so this can be a big problem. :/

    Mine just updated to r100 and it hasn't notified me of any malware or anything, I think my PC just skipped the update honestly, I haven't used it in a couple of days.

    Its fine then, the update was just live for 2 hours which happened like 3-4 hours ago.

    The Come-Steal-Leave theory of mine could be true, there was some talk about it on the twitter account. Change the passwords to be sure that nothings being stealed!

    Away from civilization.
    My laptop is on its last leg, so it hasn't been updating much of anything in months. I quickly uninstalled it after hearing about this.

    What a bag of fresh shit.

    Same boat as Guild and Tom. I'll change my password just in case, however.

    Puush went from r91 or whatever the previous was to r100.
    Ohwell, wasn't using a serious password anyway.
