#4697 closed Bug report (duplicate)

Filenames including a : get stored as alternate data streams

Reported by: test Owned by:
Priority: critical Component: FileZilla Server
Keywords: alternate data stream, alternate data streams, ads, 0 byte file Cc:
Component version: Operating system type: Windows
Operating system version: NT onward (NTFS)


When uploading from a client that supports a : in the filename, the FileZilla will accept the file for download, but will store anything after the : as an alternate data stream.

I'm not sure if this is a bug, or a feature.

It might be good to include a configuration toggle to disable this behaviour (i.e. send an invalid filename message to the sender) by default, as I found it very surprising.

Test case:

From a BSD, Mac or Linux box, create a file named "a:b". Upload the file. The server will show a 0 byte file named a, with an alternate data stream b with all of the content.
