Malwarebytes didn't find any malware but got 3 detections in virustotal


Recommended Posts

Actually I was using an app from a third party site. Scanned it with Malwarebytes and it didn't detected anything, Neither with the apk nor with the installed app. Today I scanned the apk with virustotal and it is showing me 3 detections. Here is the result:

I don't really understand what are these detections. Are these detections very serious? Actually I didn't gave the app any permissions by myself. Is it possible that due to these detections/malware in app it might have got access to my camera/storage by itself ? I was using this app from a while that's why I am very much panicking due to this. Really need your help.

Hi @Hirdyansh,

All these detections are pretty low level Potentially Unwanted Program (PUP) detections.  I wouldn't worry too much about them as they are not very serious.  May want to consider removing the app as it's not signed with app developer's digital signature, and install it from Google PLAY instead.
