Default FileZilla Has an Evil Twin that Steals FTP Logins

From http://slashdot.org/topic/datacenter...ls-ftp-logins/

On the same day the world discovered Western intelligence agencies were siphoning user information from Angry Birds and other popular smartphone apps, a leading antivirus developer revealed hackers are doing the same with one of the most popular open-source applications on the Internet.

Maliciously modified versions of the popular file-transfer protocol (FTP) application FileZilla look and act just like the real thing, but include extra code that steals the login data typed in by users and sends it to an unauthorized server using the same FTP operation launched by the user without going through a firewall that might spot what it’s doing, according to an alert posted this afternoon by antivirus developer Avast Software.
