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.
