WMI security is implemented by granting trustees permissions to WMI namespaces. A WMI namespace is a collection of logically grouped data and methods describing computer components or services. You can view WMI namespace security on the Windows platform by opening the WMI Control in the Computer Management console, and then expand "Services and Applications." Click "WMI Control" to highlight, then right click and choose "Properties."

To install WMI Namespace Security, run the following command from the command line or from PowerShell:

C:\> choco install wmisecurity

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.
