#9253 closed Bug report (wontfix)
Malware download from sourceforge

Description (last modified by )
I'm trying to download FileZilla client from https://sourceforge.net/projects/filezilla/files/latest/download?source=frontpage and my ESET Endpoint Antivirus warns me about threat:
Threat: variant of Win32/InstallCore.IO possibly unwanted application
I tried to download other software from SF (ie: Apcupsd UPS control software, KeePass, Adminer, ...) and it seems this behavior is FileZilla client specific.

I read #8888 and then tried download a lot of randomly choosen items from SF, but only FileZilla download has this issue. I still think this behavior is FileZilla specific.
I wrote to SF team last week too, but no answer up to this moment.

Explanation from SF: "The download installer was added as part of a partnership with the FileZilla team."

I believe this is a duplicate of #8888. If not, please re-open this issue.
