Kaspersky trojan warning

#1 Post by Charkel » 2018-12-28 17:33

I got a trojan warning on my FileZilla install file. Suppose false warning but just wanted to report this anyways.

It's a false positive. The bundled installer contains optional third-party offers, which are detected as PUPs (Potentially Unwanted Programs). Unfortunately, many AV software presents PUP detections exactly the same as true virus detections, in order to sell more copies.
