I used to use the Filezilla FTP program, but when I went to update it - sourceforge sent me an installer instead that wants to make unrelated changes to my system.
So it seems SF is sending mal-ware along with some of their downloads. So if you're going to download future releases of Stellarium WATCH OUT! You might find your browser hijacked and redirected.
Here's a post on their official blog:
Apparently, it's opt-in, so Filezilla apparently sold their soul... sold out their users... I mean, opted in. You can get a clean installer from here: http://download.filezilla-project.org/
Since it's opt-in, I don't think that you need to worry about Stellarium, at least for now. If SourceForge makes it not-optional... I guess we'll have to find another host.
