HOTFIX: You may be unable to use an FTP application to upload a file to a remote server on a computer that has Internet Explorer 7 installed

September 16th 2007 in Uncategorized

On a computer that has Windows Internet Explorer 7 installed, you may be unable to use an FTP application to upload a file to a remote server.


This problem occurs if the application is based on WinINet FTP functions.


This problem occurs because of an access violation that is caused by the InternetWriteFile WinINet API function.


When you use an application that is based on WinINet FTP functions to upload a file to a remote server, the remote file is created by using the APPE FTP command. However, when the operating system tries to use the InternetWriteFile function to write the file, this access violation occurs.

The IE team have blogged about the release of a new version of the SiteLock Template for ActiveX Controls.  I can’t stress strongly enough how important it is that developers place security first when developing controls. 
Over the years there have been numerous instances where ActiveX controls have exposed a vulnerability that has been exploited […]
