Sometimes we come across websites which can contain harmful malware and phishing scams. Although there are a number of ways to avoid getting affected by such malicious agents (such as protective applications and extensions), however, these security parameters require visiting the website for them to work. By then it can be too late to stop these malicious agents from infecting your computer. Such malware can be quite harmful for people who use File Transfer Protocols like FTP. For example, a website can be infected by a virus when one transfers a file to the FTP server for deployment.
