SSH ActiveX

Secure Shell (SSH) is a protocol to log into another computer over a network, to execute commands in a remote machine. It provides strong authentication and secure communications over unsecure channels. It is intended as a replacement for rlogin, rsh, and rcp.


SCP ActiveX

MySCP is a COM object which provides simlpe interface to copy files between Windows and Linux/Unix systems over a secure encrypted channel.You can use it with any language which supports the Microsoft COM technolgy.

Industry news:

Mar 23. SSH Tectia Server (Unix) 4.0 Vulnerability in "passwd" Program

SSH.com reported that there is a vulnerability in the SSH Tectia Server (Unix) 4.0.3 and 4.0.4 code. The flaw reportedly resides in the password change mechanism that executes the "passwd" program during user authentication to change the user's password when the user's password has expired. This feature is not enabled by default, the vendor said.

Jan 19. OpenSSL Vulnerabilities in ASN.1 parsing

NISCC (www.niscc.gov.uk) prepared a test suite to check the operation of SSL/TLS software when presented with a wide range of malformed client certificates. Dr Stephen Henson (steve@openssl.org) of the OpenSSL core team identified and prepared fixes for a number of vulnerabilities in the OpenSSL ASN1 code when running the test suite. A bug in OpenSSLs SSL/TLS protocol was also identified which causes OpenSSL to parse a client certificate from an SSL/TLS client when it should reject it as a protocol error.

Nov 11. OpenSSH Buffer Mismanagement Vulnerabilities

A buffer mismanagement vulnerability has been reported in OpenSSH. This issue exists in the 'buffer.c' source file and may potentially be exploited to execute arbitrary code with the privileges of OpenSSH. Exploitation of this bug to execute arbitrary code has not been confirmed, though it may potentially be used to cause a denial of service. This condition can reportedly be triggered by an overly large packet.

Nov 4. OpenSSL ASN.1 Large Recursion Remote Denial Of Service Vulnerability

A problem has been identified in OpenSSL when handling specific types of ASN.1 requests. This may result in remote attackers creating a denial of service condition. This issue is also known to affect numerous Cisco products. It is possible that other vendors will also be acknowledging this issue and providing fixes.
