Privacy / Security Issue Fixed in 184.108.40.206
In previous versions, as with standard zip versions and other portable packages of FileZilla, if you wished to store SFTP hashes between sessions, the only option available was to store it in the registry in the same location as regular PuTTY. And this would be left behind on the PC. This poses two issues. First, if you accidentally saved it, you'd leave a trail of what servers you connected to via SFTP. Second, if you relied on the local PC's cache of a specific server, it might theoretically be possible to spoof the cached hash in conjunction with a change to the DNS record via a host file or similar measuer and connect you to a different server for the purpose of stealing your password.
Though this situation is highly unlikely, we have added a fix that allows you to keep your cached hashes with you to prevent either of the above situations from occurring. This fix is only in FileZilla Portable 220.127.116.11 and higher from PortableApps.com. The standard FileZilla zip file (which is not really meant to be portable) and other portable packages are vulnerable.
New In This Release
FileZilla was updated to 18.104.22.168 (release notes) and handles SFTP hashes portably fixing the security and privacy issue mentioned above.
