Media Server causing Windows Defender positive

Brandon Acker

Recommended Posts

When I download the latest Media Sever (full version) it's triggering Windows 10/11 Defender as a "Potentially unwanted app found" .


Detected "PUA:Win32/Caypnamer.A!ml" 


Is this a false positive?

Yes. Probably it is classified as "Potentially unwanted app" because it has been downloaded from the internet and it is rarely used up to now.


Yesterday I've installed DVBViewer 7.2.0 and Media Server 3.2.0 (after downloading them and transferring the files via my home network to another PC) under Windows 10 and got no Defender warning.


If you are not sure, ask VirusTotal and check the digital signature of the file.
