    # NOTE: It is an anti-pattern to call chocolateyUninstall.ps1 from here. If you
    #  need to uninstall an MSI prior to upgrade, put the functionality in this
    #  file without calling the uninstall script. Make it idempotent in the
    #  uninstall script so that it doesn't fail when it is already uninstalled.

Virus Scan Results

In cases where actual malware is found, the packages are subject to removal. Software sometimes has false positives. Moderators do not necessarily validate the safety of the underlying software, only that a package retrieves software from the official distribution point and/or validate embedded software against official distribution point (where distribution rights allow redistribution).

Chocolatey Pro provides runtime protection from possible malware.
