# Ubuntu – ClamAV PUA.Win32.Packer.PrivateExeProte-7

14.04antivirusclamavmalwaremono

I ran ClamAV on my system and it reported two detections.

It reported PUA.Win32.Packer.PrivateExeProte-7 in:

/usr/lib/mono/4.0/mscorlib.dll
/urs/lib/mono/4.5/mscorlib.dll


It says Action taken: None, and I basically have the option to quarantine those files. Is this a virus, trojan or some other malware? I see that my installation of Ubuntu 14.04 has Mono installed (I would assume it was installed by default when I installed the system because I don't remember installing it myself). If this really is malware and I quarantine and remove these files would I break anything?

I also have Windows 7 installed along my Ubuntu 14.04 system and I use ClamAV to protect that system from possibly getting infected and because I wouldn't want to spread possible malware to someone else who uses a Windows OS. I don't have Wine installed.

I tried looking online on various forums but I find conflicting reports and opinions on what this is so that's why I'm asking this question here.
