Possibly a noob question but I'm a noob to this forum :)

I know that scanning with --detect-oua in the command line is going to 
throw a few false positives. However is there a place that common false 
positives can be either registered or looked up?

I've got an Ubuntu server with webmin installed for use by a developer. 
The clamscan below returns two false positives. The CVE is an IE exploit 
to do with the clipboard - possibly the code lets that happen, the other 
I dont know what the issue is - no real warning info.

When looking it up on Google I got no hits, Virustotal says no issues - 
so thus my question. If there was a central repository of PUAs by 
product etc it would make eliminating theme easier.

Ubuntu 14.10 LTs, Latest freshclam, Latest version of clam obtainable 
via apt-get, latest version of webmin.

me at somewhere:/home/me# sudo clamscan -r -i --detect-pua
