Download of FileZilla Client for Windows has confirmed Virus

#1 Post by MrRenegade » 2020-10-28 03:52

Just confirmed with using anti-virus software on a Windows 10 computer and a Linux Debian 10 (Buster) computer. Sent it to VirusTotal and it popped positive for 9 different anti-virus applications.

You guys might want to look at fixing this very soon or FileZilla is going to get a really bad reputation really fast.

It's a confirmed false-positive. Contact your AV vendor for further assistance.

Many antiviruses swear at official programs. It's hard to imagine that FileZilla will have a trojan :D

It's called a false-positive. Contact your AV vendor to complain about it.
