Sophos PUA detection when upgrading


Recommended Posts



I downloaded the latest build this afternoon (9519) to upgrade our existing installation (from build 9414). 

Checksums of the installer were validated and these matched the ones published on the download page.


When trying to run the .exe on the Passwordstate server, I am getting a Sophos detection as follows:

"Generic ML PUA detected at C:\ProgramData\miaAD8.tmp\Passwordstate.exe"


The ML PUA detection appears to be for non-malicious 'unwanted programs', so this is probably just a false positive from Sophos.


We can allow at our end but just wondering if anyone else had seen this recently, and if there was a way it could be allow-listed globally by Sophos?
