Re: WinSCP malware?

The winscp.rnd is data file, no executable contents.
See https://winscp.net/eng/docs/ui_pref_storage#other

So it just a nonsense that it could be a malware.
I have commented the blog post. But it's moderated and the comment has to be approved. Will see what and if they respond.

Well...
considering greatis.com is blocked by a lot of antivirus software as 'malware/malicious' and that it is basically a front for pushing their not-quite-trustworthy 'malware-remover' called Unhackme, I would not put too much weight on what is found there.

They seem to just google-spam the most searched for software and brand it as 'malware' so that people can download their (probably malware itself) software.

Here's what they say about Putty:

"We checked up the file PUTTY.RND and found it hazardous. The file PUTTY.RND must be deleted from the system immediately. "

Scum of the Earth types basically :mrgreen:
