This time, pentesting experts from the International Institute of Cyber Security (IICS) will show you the use of TermGuard, which protects users from malicious code.
Simply enter the following command in Termux to complete the TermGuard installation, mentioned the pentesting specialists.
apt update && apt upgrade && apt install git && git clone https://github.com/DarkGa/TermGuard && cd TermGuard && bash install.sh

The antivirus has detected two potential threats.
