The hugely popular open source FTP client FileZilla fell victim to a malicious copycat floating around on the Internet. This version of FileZilla is reported to be stealing FTP credentials. If you use FileZilla (which the majority of our users do), please make sure you are running the real version from https://filezilla-project.org/
This is a good time to review your FTP account security settings! Remember, if you use IP restrictions, even if a malicious user obtains your password, they cannot login with IP restrictions set!
