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

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

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.
