It's a false alarm.

Two possible reasons:
- Random pattern in the installer that somehow matches a virus signature. Bad virus scanners seem to report such things all the time.
- The installer contains a small dll to download the sourcecode of FileZilla on demand, some bad virus scanners think it's a trojan. (Perhaps this dll is used by some trojans?)

I get the same warning, but only with 2.2.13a, no other installers. I think I'll just stick to an older version until this gets figured out. If it's a new virus, some programs may not be reporting it yet. I know from experience that McAfee can run 2-3 days behind AVG on new viri (another reason never to use McAfee).

botg, I'm not saying AVG is all that great, but I'm curious as to what you consider a "bad virus scanner".

Computer Associates' eTrust Antivirus 7.1. I scanned it with both the InoculateIT and Vet engines whose signatures were updated today:
Code:
InoculateIT Engine version:                 23.68.00    2004/12/28
InoculateIT Signature version:  virsig.da0  23.68.104   2005/04/20


Vet         Engine version:                 11.07.00    2004/08/25
Vet         Signature version:  vet.da1     11.07.9087  2005/04/20

Some more information: -

I installed 2.2.13a on a system with McAfee 8.0 (current DAT files). This found no problem.

I then scanned the FileZilla folder on that system from a networked computer running AVG 7. This detects the Downloader trojan in the file uninstall.exe.

Essentially this means that, even if AVG is disabled during FileZilla setup, it will still flag a problem afterwards. For whatever reason, this makes FileZilla 2.2.13a totally unusable on systems with AVG 7.

i have just updated avg to 266.10.2 tonight and tried filezilla 2.2.13a and no virus detected now so it looks as though the problem was only caused by the avg 266.10.1 update, now a happy person again

Confirmed - the AVG 266.10.2 update fixes this problem.
