[Resolved] PUA: Win32/Pearfoos.A!ml in ioq3v6-intel.exe

Post by imprecise »

Hi Adminless

I have a problem, I just saw that Windows Defender detected a potentially unwanted application in me when I had just quit UnFreeZe ... I have windows 10 version 20h2

Detected: PUA: Win32/Pearfoos.A!ml

affected item: C:\ioq3v6-unfreeze-client-v20.5a\ioq3v6-intel.exe

the possible actions are: Delete / Quarantine / Authorize on the device

is it normal that Defender detects this ? What should I do ?

thank you in advance

@alyeti yes I know that it is an adware of which I do not know the dangerousness and the characteristics, and no I did not do absolutely nothing it came like that suddenly and for no apparent reason, hence my surprise !!!

that's a false positive, try updating the windows defender database.

PUA: Win32/Pearfoos.A!ml removed by Defender

I just re-downloaded ioq3v6-unfreeze-client-v20.5a.zip I replaced ioq3v6-intel.exe then scan with Defender and no more PUA detected

thank you for your help

ok that's great then, I'm glad you sorted it out soon and thanks for get back with the "solution" (apparently re-download and re-install from the site, good to know).
