    If I install WinSCP, can a virus use the FTP program to download itself onto my computer? Because I noticed that I got a trojan a few days after I installed WinSCP before.

    Where is the official website?

    Anyways, I meant that a virus maker could connect to my computer via FTP and download a virus onto my PC.

    ohh I highly doubt they could but I guess it's possible
    and the official website just google WinSCP and it should be like the first site

    WinSCP won't allow anything like that, you've obviously just done nothing to secure your computer.

    I just installed WinSCP. So you're sure nothing will happen to my computer?

    A "virus maker" could connect to your computer regardless if you have WinSCP or not.
