I've had trojans trying to infect my machine on two out of three FTP accounts that I use. Once evrey few days for the past few weeks, usually soon after I connect.
Norton Antivirus blocked them and gave me a message with the name of the trojan (last one was phinneas phucker) and the path - Filezilla.exe, my FTP client.
First question, is there anything I can do to make the FTP client itself more secure. Perhaps there's something wrong with filezilla?
And secondly, should I contact the web hosting provider about this? I mean, isn't it their job to keep their system clean? what if I wanted to use FTP to allow downloads from my site, surely I'd unknowingly infect all my visitors.
