Infection Found in µTorrent Stable(1.8.7 build 43796) for Mac _ Infection = PUA.OSX.InstallCore


Recommended Posts


When I read this site's advice to update µTorrent to version 1.8.7  I went to the main page > http://www.utorrent.com/ and download the latest version.

When downloading µTorrent Stable(1.8.7 build 43796) for Mac a warning from my antivirus popped up.

It reads, "Infection Found! _ µTorrent.dmg infected with PUA.OSX.InstallCore" (See attached clip of the warning)

I deleted the .dmg.

Then, I went to the Mac download page > http://www.utorrent.com/downloads/mac and tried downloading from there.

I had the same results, so, I deleted this .dmg too.


I am using ClamXAV v2.17/0.99.4 (3603) for my antivirus program.

You can see a clip of the information ClamXV showed from its scan of the .dmg for µTorrent Stable(1.8.7 build 43796) for Mac (See 2nd image)


This is the best antivirus program for Mac.

It catches problems before the other, so called, great antivirus programs Norton and McAfee get their updates out.

I USED to use them, but not anymore.


So, how do I upgrade my version of µTorrent for Mac safely?

Thanks for your help.
