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

choco upgrade nugetdefense -y --source="'STEP 3 URL'"

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

In cases where actual malware is found, the packages are subject to removal. Software sometimes has false positives.

Chocolatey Pro provides runtime protection from possible malware.
