Hi ---waQas---,

 

PUA stands for Potentially Unwanted Application, so this means that the file may not be malicious but rather something like a keygen, crack file or other illegal application. The screenshot of the post describing the hazards of the PUA.Win32.Packer file might be true in some cases, but many files are identified under the same name. If you want more information about a particular file contact the ClamAV team directly.

 

Also, if you're confident about a file you can always add exclusions on your own computer or submit false positives (as well as potential malware) to the Clam team here.

 

Thanks.
