If you download a copy of FTP program FileZilla, make sure you get it from the official FileZilla site, or, from SourceForge, as many malicious third-party sites are modifying the source code, enabling them to steal data from unsuspecting users.
Security company Avast posted on their blog the following:
“We strongly recommend to download any software only from official, well-known or trusted sources. Avoid strange looking websites and portals offering software via their own downloaders or installers containing bundled adware and PUP applications.”
