choco upgrade far -y --source="'INTERNAL REPO URL'" --version="'3.0.5200'" 

Write-Verbose "Exit code was $exitCode"

In cases where actual malware is found, the packages are subject to removal. Software sometimes has false positives. Moderators do not necessarily validate the safety of the underlying software, only that a package retrieves software from the official distribution point and/or validate embedded software against official distribution point (where distribution rights allow redistribution).

Chocolatey Pro provides runtime protection from possible malware.
