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

----------- SCAN SUMMARY -----------
Known viruses: 6688222
Engine version: 0.100.1
Scanned directories: 4
Scanned files: 66
Infected files: 0
Data scanned: 39.25 MB
Data read: 218.42 MB (ratio 0.18:1)
Time: 32.846 sec (0 m 32 s)
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 :)
