Dangerous shortcut on OS X

There is a very dangerous shortcut on Mac that one would confuse with a very common MacOS Finder shortcut.

The combination is ⌘↓ (command + arrow down).

In MacOS Finder it is used to ENTER a directory. In Filezilla it is used to start uploading local directory or file to remote server immediately.

I just had a concrete case where my left side (local) cursor was on an important yet secret folder and the remote was a foreign server that definitely should not have my files.

So I started going into my secret local folder by pressing ⌘↓ but instead of entering the folder it started uploading my secret folder immediately. Fortunately I was quick enough to cancel the upload AND I had DELETE permissions on the remote side. Otherwise the consequences could have been quite serious.
