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

choco upgrade io-ninja -y --source="'INTERNAL REPO URL'" 

Write-Verbose "Exit code was $exitCode"
$validExitCodes = @(0, 1605, 1614, 1641, 3010)

IO Ninja is a professional all-in-one terminal emulator, sniffer, and protocol analyzer. IO Ninja is highly modular and has plugins for most transports and protocols you might сome across — network (TCP, UDP, SSL, SSH, WebSockets, etc.), serial (UART, I2C, SPI, Modbus, etc.), and others (USB, Pipes, J-Link RTT, etc.). IO Ninja is scriptable and allows you to generate packets programmatically, react to incoming packets and other IO events, and create non-standard protocol analyzers.

IO Ninja is your debugger for any IO-related task and a must-have tool for network security experts, system administrators, and all developers who deal with network programming in their line of work.

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.
