It's a potentially unwanted application. For information what PUAs are, please read https://support.eset.com/kb2629/.

The detection is optional. If you think that benefits of using a particular PUA outweigh possible risks, you can exclude it from detection.

The https://support.eset.com/kb2629/ is quite generic. Can more detail information provide? Such as the unwanted application will edit the Internet browser setting which allow attacker to inject malicious code to user's endpoint. Thanks.
