Malicious Putty - possible security issue?

Hello,
it has come to my attention that there is malware infected version of PuTTY out there (http://securityaffairs.co/wordpress/37013/cyber-crime/malicious-putty-in-the-wild.html) and since WinSCP is based on PuTTY, I'd like to ask if there is any possibility that similar version of WinSCP appears. Users of our servers are using WinSCP a lot and this might be big security problem. Thanks in advance for any information!

If your users download WinSCP from our official download page only, you are safe.
Ideally you should verify a file checksum after the download.
