FAMOC uses VirusTotal services to validate apps security reputation. Information about package including package_name and md5 hash are sent to VT servers which generates app report.
Report is based on a result of many antivirus scans. Downloaded information consist of number of performed scans and risk detections. Depending on the results, app is given appropriate security reputation level.
For each VT report you can view a summary (example).
There are five reputation levels:
UNKNOWN - (grey)
OK - (green) Trustworthy
INFO - (blue) Low risk
WARNING - (yellow) Suspicious
ERROR - (red) Dangerous
