Vulnerability Insight:
Many versions of PSCP in PuTTY prior to 0.67 have a stack corruption vulnerability in their treatment of the 'sink' direction (i.e. downloading from server to client) of the old-style SCP protocol. In order for this vulnerability to be exploited, the user must connect to a malicious server and attempt to download any file (CVE-2016-2563). FileZilla was vulnerable to this issue as it bundles a copy of PuTTY. The filezilla package has been updated to version 3.16.1, which fixes this issue and has many other fixes and enhancements.

Update the affected packages to the latest available version.
