    Hi, i got a tar.xz file from a trusted source and when i look at the user and group assigned to extracted dir name it shows clamav(number)/cpaneldemo(number) and i am wondering why.

    The files are a static build so i guess that means no install is necessary, you just move the file into place. This one is going into usr/local/bin but i dont want to move it until i check what that user and group assignment means.

    Does that mean that i need to scan them first?
    Does that mean that they are infected?

    What does that mean please?

    i ran clamav on the whole new unzipped folder and it came back ok

    So now i can just change user and group right, or is there another step ?

    I moved it into place /usr/local/bin and it works fine... when i moved it, it automatically changed user and group to root...

    Thanks :)

    Yea you'd just need to change the User/Group - this most likely occurred because the UID/GID didn't match that of the user you were unpacking it for
