Deployment Method:

NOTE

This applies to both open source and commercial editions of Chocolatey.

1. Enter Your Internal Repository Url

(this should look similar to https://community.chocolatey.org/api/v2/)


2. Setup Your Environment

1. Ensure you are set for organizational deployment

Please see the organizational deployment guide

2. Get the package into your environment

  • Open Source or Commercial:
    • Proxy Repository - Create a proxy nuget repository on Nexus, Artifactory Pro, or a proxy Chocolatey repository on ProGet. Point your upstream to https://community.chocolatey.org/api/v2/. Packages cache on first access automatically. Make sure your choco clients are using your proxy repository as a source and NOT the default community repository. See source command for more information.
    • You can also just download the package and push it to a repository Download

3. Copy Your Script

choco upgrade winja.install -y --source="'INTERNAL REPO URL'" [other options]

See options you can pass to upgrade.

See best practices for scripting.

Add this to a PowerShell script or use a Batch script with tools and in places where you are calling directly to Chocolatey. If you are integrating, keep in mind enhanced exit codes.

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


choco upgrade winja.install -y --source="'INTERNAL REPO URL'" 
$exitCode = $LASTEXITCODE

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

Exit $exitCode

Description

Winja is a free application for Microsoft Windows that lets you find potential malware on your system. It uses the scanning engine of virtually all antivirus products in the market to give you a very precise idea of the risk posed by a particular file.

Two concrete examples of using Winja

  • You have downloaded a file from the Internet, you want to remove as many doubts as possible. Drag this file onto the main window and wait for the results that will appear on your desktop.
  • You suspect your computer is infected. Scan all services and processes for malware.
    To do this, Winja first uses the VirusTotal public API to submit the fingerprint of a file. If this fingerprint exists, Winja returns the existing analysis report. If not (with your previously set permission), Winja sends the unknown file to VirusTotal servers for scanning. It is also possible for you to have files (called samples) analyzed again at any time to update the detection ratio.

Winja lets you, very simply and quickly, find suspicious files in places favored by malware

  • Active Processes
  • Processes that use network resources (that connect to the Internet)
  • Services
  • Applications that start with Windows
  • Task Scheduler
    You can also easily drag and drop files to the main Winja window or to the desktop gadget to scan them.

The final example of scanning is the use of an extension for Windows Explorer that allows you to request a scan by right-clicking on one or more files from your file browser.

Since version 6, Winja is available in French following strong demand from the French-speaking community.

Winja is cited and recommended by VirusTotal (a subsidiary of Google) as an alternative to their own desktop application for Windows: https://support.virustotal.com/hc/en-us/articles/115002179065-Desktop-apps

For our part, as well as theirs, we make sure that this application is a complement to your favorite antivirus and does not put at risk the antivirus brands that lend us their signatures free of charge.

For this reason, Winja remains a passive analysis tool and is not a substitute for the installation and use of an antivirus software.

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.
