SFTPPlus 3.16.0 Release

Thu 27 October 2016 | general release Written by Adi Roiban

We are pleased to announce the latest release of SFTPPlus, version 3.16.0.

It includes a security fix in which the transfer scripts were previously executed a root, even if the process was configured to run under a non-root account. This affects only the client-side functionality. As long as only server-side functionality was used, you are not affected by this security issue.

This release adds support for the FTP REST, MFMT, SITE UTIME commands, as well as allowing to set the modified time using the MDTM command.

Here is the list of some other defect fixes included in this release:

  • Monitoring/watching a location is no longer stopped when a file is quickly moved to overwrite an existing file.
  • An internal error is no longer generated for STOR and APPE FTP commands when failing to open the requested file due to a generic error.
