utorrent/ PUP.Optional.Bundlesinstaller - FalsePositive?

Recommended Posts

I have used Malwarebytes and utorrent for quite a few years without any major issues.

Today I ran a scan which threw up 6 results - all relating to utorrent.

I have attached the scan log.

I don't understand why I have never had an issue with utorrent before.

Are these results problematic for my security? Do I have to uninstall utorrent? Can I safely quarantine these files without affecting operation of utorrent?

Thanks

Hi,

This is a PUP, which means, potentially unwanted program. The reason is because the installer is often bundled with additional software, where users click through the install screens without really reading or unchecking the additional most often unwanted software. You don't need to quarantine this file if you're using Utorrent. You can set an exclusion for it instead.
