 General APPL/ - Application

This class of detection flags applications that if used unproperly or with malicious intent might damage or compromise security on the local system, remote systems or network infrastructure. These are legitimate applications that can be used to extract protected information, provide remote access to the local machine, modify advanced system settings or perform advanced operating system or networking functions.

This detection doesn't mean that the file is malicious. However, if the file got on the system without the user's knowledge the system's security might be compromised.

Disabling this detection is recommended for advanced users that understand the risks and how to use these applications.
