As received via mail:

So today, I was testing some applications for common vulnerabilities and discovered that filezilla client application for windows was suffering from DLL hijack vulnerability. Due to this vulnerability, a hacker can uses a malicious DLL to replace the DLL that comes with installation. The filezilla client will install with no corruption however due to use of malicious DLL the hacker can get access to user's confidential information. You can learn more about DLL hijack on this link. Attached is also the picture where I used a harmless DLL that informs me if an application is vulnerable to DLL hijacking.

Thank you,
