After a podcast discussion with Troy Hunt discussing how WiFi profiles for unsecured networks on your laptop or smartphone are vulnerable to spoofing, Scott wrote this utility to find and delete these profiles.

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).
