Topic "Do I have a trojan'd install?"

I downloaded the latest copy of WinSCP 4.2.5 from FileHippo.

As part of the install process, it makes a number of connections to HTTP sites and then, after asking me what folder etc to install in, offers to install Xobni (A search plugin for Outlook).

If I disallow the WinSCP installer from access the HTTP sites (using my software firewall) it doesn't offer this.

I haven't see anyone else mention this "offer" on the forums, so I wonder if I've installed a Trojaned/altered version.

Is this Extra an offical part of the WinSCP install now?

Cheers,

Tim

Thank you for the reply. I'd been searching "WinSCP" and "Xobni" and not getting any hits, I'd also scanned the changelog and a few other things. But I was always looking specifically for Xobni.

Thanks for the clarification and apologies for wasting your time.

Are there any trojan symptoms? Anything at all ? AV alerts? if not you are clear, if so I'm sorry go to Tech SUpport Guy forums and post an inquiry there.

Never mind, Xobni is totally legit, no need to worry Mr. Green
