It seems that the latest version of WinSCP tries to install a bogus software "pcSpeedUp" (www[.]pcspeedup[.]com)

This is a BOGUS software (possibly a trojan, just look it up!).

The installer says that this 3rd party software is RECOMMENDED BY WINSCP (sic!).

What is going on ?
WinSCP lost my trust.

The WinSCP installer was downloaded from
http://netcologne.dl.sourceforge.net/project/winscp/WinSCP/4.2.9/winscp429setup.exe

Thanks for your post. I'll remove this software from recommendation list.
