If you do use a PowerShell script, use the following to ensure bad exit codes are shown as failures:

choco upgrade connexion -y --source="'INTERNAL REPO URL'" 

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.
