WinSCP < 3.8.2 Arbitrary Command Insertion

High

Synopsis

The remote host is vulnerable to an arbitrary 'command insertion' flaw.

Description

The remote host is running WinSCP, a file transfer application that utilizes Secure Shell (SSH) as the transport protocol. This version of WinSCP is vulnerable to a flaw in the way that it parses URI strings. An attacker exploiting this flaw would need to be able to convince a WinSCP user to click on a malicious URI. Successful exploitation would result in the attacker executing arbitrary commands with the rights of the user running WinSCP.

Solution

Upgrade to version 3.8.2 or higher.
