Symantec has found WinSCP.com to be infected with Infostealer.Limitail. False positive?

5.7.5 also installs "WinSCP.com" but Symantec doesn't complain about it in that version. I'm downgrading to 5.7.5 until this issue is resolved or explained. I recommend everyone else do the same.

Thanks for your report. I have submitted a false positive report to Symantec.

There's no difference between winscp.com in 5.7.5 and 5.7.6.

Did you verify checksums of the downloaded file?
