#728 closed Bug report

Trojan and spyware infected

Reported by: anonymous Owned by:
Priority: normal Component: Other

Component version: Operating system type:
Operating system version:


I was happy with this program's test at home and then
went to work and installed it on several machines.
Little did I know that when I rebooted I would have
ISTToolbar or something like that Installing on each of
these machines. When I ran pest patrol I found a slew
of new spyware (on a machine that had been reinstalled
the same day and not surfed the internet yet) and 4
trojan horses. Please get these out of the installer so
we can use your wonderful program!!!!!!

Already known, staff has been notified. The
version of FZ listed on is an unofficial third
party version of FileZilla. Please report this issued to the staff as well.

In future, only download FileZilla from this site, those
packages are 100% free of any malicious software.

This bug report has been closed due to inactivity and has possibly
already been solved.

You can reopen this report if the issue still exists in the
latest version of FileZilla (Server).
