Software update: FileZilla Server 1.8.2

Spread the love

Version 1.8.2 of the open source FTP server FileZilla Server has been released. FileZilla Server is a small and powerful FTP server with support for FXP (sending files from one FTP server to another), secure connections (SSL and TLS), GSS authentication and Kerberos encryption. For a long time the program was only available for Windows, but since version 1.2.0 also for Linux and macOS. The following changes and improvements have been made in this release:

Fixed vulnerabilities:

  • FileZilla Server now requires that the configuration directory is owned either by the operating system user account the server runs under, or a more privileged user (SYSTEM, Amdministrators, TrustedInstaller on Windows, root elsewhere)
  • MSW: Mount points are now case-insensitive so that restrictions on sub mounts cannot be bypassed by a change of character case

Bug fixes and minor changes:

  • Fixed a potential deadlock during transfers
  • FTP: Fixed potential crash if the session gets closed
