Topic review


Hi Martin, thanks for the update.

Re: Browser Hijacker installed after WinSCP install

Thanks for your report.
We don't have any similar reports.
I'm quite sure that this is not related to WinSCP nor our site.
The official WinSCP installer does not install anything apart from the WinSCP itself.
And an advert cannot modify your browser.

Browser Hijacker installed after WinSCP install


Last week WinSCP was installed from this site and after completing the install my browser had a hijacker installed. Wondering if there's any knowledge of an attack on this site? Perhaps it was from an advert running on the site?

Any support on this issue would be much appreciated. Trying to narrow down where it could have been installed from.
