    Filezilla security issue

    #1 Post by colincruz » 2018-10-11 16:28

    I have been using Filezilla Client for years on various computers and I love it...it works great.

    Except, right now. on one of our computers, I am unable to securely download files.

    I have been getting the attached security message over the last week, and Windows Defender Antivirus twice flagged files right after I tried to download files from Filezilla. The computer in question is a Windows 10 Pro computer. I am not getting any such error message when downloading the same files on two other Windows servers that are using other Windows OS's.

    I have checked, and I have the latest update of Filezilla.

    What should I do? Is there a fix for this?

    Windows Defender flagging it is a false-positive, contact Microsoft to have this fixed.

  2. Filezilla download problem

    Hey everyone,
    I've been trying to download a large file(about 6gb) with filezilla through my ftp server(running filezilla) at home while I'm at college. Unfortunately, it always seems to give me this message while I'm around 30% done saying that the file exists. I've tried the skip, overwrite, and resume options, but it always resets. How do I get around this problem? Can I just not download a file that big?

    thanks in advance

    Filezilla download problem

    I don't know, I use pretty much the same setup, Filezilla Server and FileZilla client, and have download 10GB+ files with it. There might be a setting somewhere in the server that is preventing the file from resuming, or maybe even something in the client.
