WinSCP scp and sftp command execution
|winscp-scpsftp-command-execution (36591)||Medium Risk|
WinSCP could allow a remote attacker to execute arbitrary commands on the system. By persuading a victim to visit a specially-crafted Web site containing scp or sftp commands in an iframe, an attacker could exploit this vulnerability to upload arbitrary files to the system or download arbitrary files from the system.
Upgrade to the latest version of WinSCP (4.04 or later), available from the WinSCP Web site. See References.

- CVE-2007-4909: Interpretation conflict in WinSCP before 4.0.4 allows remote attackers to perform arbitrary file transfers with a remote server via file-transfer commands in the final portion of a (1) scp, and possibly a (2) sftp or (3) ftp, URL, as demonstrated by a URL specifying login to the remote server with a username of scp, which is interpreted as an HTTP scheme name by the protocol handler in a web browser, but is interpreted as a username by WinSCP. NOTE: this is related to an incomplete fix for CVE-2006-3015.
