Downloading files from first-time clients

I'm brand-new to Upwork and have never worked with clients who have not been personally referred to me before, so working with unknown clients seems like a leap in the dark. I am particularly worried about downloading PDFs from companies I have never worked with before. Has anyone ever had trouble with unscrupulous clients sending them malware via downloads? Does this ever happen? Does Upwork have a way to make sure that all clients are trustworthy? Thanks.
