The positive thing is that when downloading, httrack does 
not execute anything : the antivirus can always intercept 
the virus, during download, or after the download when the 
AV database is being updated. Besides, file types are 
always explicit for copied files (.exe, for example - 
no "fake" .jpg files). While browsing directly, the risks 
are greater if your virus database is not up-to-date..
