SecureFX geeft de gebruiker een versleuteld SSH2-kanaal waarop bestanden uitgewisseld kunnen worden via SFTP en FTP. Erg handig om toe te passen in verschillende geautomatiseerde omgevingen waardoor je geen belangrijke wachtwoorden in platte tekst over de lijn stuurt. Voor meer informatie over de werking van dit programma wijzen we jullie door naar deze pagina. VanDyke Software heeft SecureFX 4.0.2 de deur uitgedaan met de volgende aanpassingen sinds de vorige vermelding in de meuktracker:
- File transfer information was not logged when the transfer queue was used.
- SFTP: ASCII files without an EOL at the end of a file were corrupted during SFTP transfers.
- SFTP: SecureFX crashed when connecting to an OpenVMS SFTP server.
- SFXCL: The /Delete flag only worked when wildcards were used.
- According to US-CERT Vulnerability Note VU#845620, it is theoretically possible for an attacker to forge RSA signatures when the RSA key has a public exponent of three. SecureFX no longer generates keys with a public exponent of three and warns before a key with a public exponent of three is used for authentication or accepted from a host.
- SecureFX crashed when attempting to manually transfer a file while the remote listing was being refreshed.
- The transfer queue flashed when multiple files had been selected and then were being transferred.
- When attempting to re-transfer a file in the queue that had originally been cut and pasted from one location to another on the remote, SecureFX reported that the file could not be found.
- SFTP: SecureFX crashed when attempting to connect to a VShell server that explicitly denied SFTP access.
- FTP and FTP/SSL: If a transfer or file listing was cancelled, the connection was lost.
- FTP/SSL: SecureFX could not connect to servers that required SSLv3 compatibility.
- FTP/SSL: After downloading a 0-byte file from Filezilla, the file was locked on the local machine.
- SFXCL: SFXCL transfer reported success for sessions with an expired password.
- File attributes could not be set for multiple files.
- FTP: Under certain circumstances, SecureFX crashed when a "pwd" command was issued.
Version 4.0 beta 4:
- Files copied from other applications could not be pasted into SecureFX windows.
- When SecureFX was integrated with SecureCRT, double clicking a terminal-only session in the Connect dialog did not launch SecureCRT.
- If a session that had been deleted or renamed was selected from the Recently Used Sessions list, a different session was opened.
- FTP/SSL: SecureFX crashed after attempting to retransfer files that had been uploaded and then deleted from the remote machine.
Version 4.0 beta 3:
- The transfer queue cannot be toggled while a transfer is in progress.
- For manual downloads and uploads done through the transfer queue, the file sizes are shown when the transfer starts.
- Increased the size of the authentication, key exchange, ciphers, and MACs list boxes in order to eliminate the scrollbars.
- Added a maximize button to the Connect dialog.
- FTP/SSL: Improved error message for failed connections.
- Under certain circumstances, when trying to start SecureFX, SecureFX kept reporting a "failed to open clipboard" error.
- SecureFX crashed if a file type that did not have an associated extension was edited.
- In the Connect dialog, sometimes renaming a session or pressing ALT+Q (Quick Connect) did not work.
- Under certain circumstances, a directory listing of a large directory with long file names could fail.
- If the mouse was hovering over a file name while dragging and dropping multiple files, the transfer failed.
- Attempting to transfer an empty directory resulted in an error.
- When a connection attempt was cancelled, the connection was retried if the connection retry "Maximum number of attempts" option was set to a value greater than zero.
- When SecureCRT was integrated with SecureFX, if a SecureFX session was launched from SecureCRT, sometimes the Session Options dialog did not list all of the available protocols for that session.
- SFTP: When SFTP roots were used, timestamps were not correctly preserved for uploads.
- SFTP: When connected to an OpenSSH server, the user/group information was displayed as numbers instead of as text.
