Okay, the website of a company/programmer team, SourceForge, or any other website is not immune from a security breach. Apparently this is not the case here.

The first Google result for "FileZilla" is the official website. The Linux and Windows versions are hosted on SourceForge and the project's own website respectively.

So how on Earth does this happen?!
The best way to avoid the evil twin is to make sure downloads come only from trusted sites, avoid sites using custom downloaders and avoid installers that have adware or other add-on application installed as well, the report recommends.
May the source be with you!
