#7004 closed defect (fixed)

Extract Archive error when parentheses are in filename

Reported by: wiserweb Owned by: dkocher
Priority: normal Milestone: 4.3
Component: sftp Version: 4.2.1
Severity: normal Keywords: parentheses, escape characters, extract archive
Cc: Architecture: Intel


It appears that the extraction function currently doesn't escape parentheses from the command that is run when extracting a file.

If the file is on a server, extract command will work.

If the file is on a server named 'abc(1).zip', the extract will fail as the command that is being run on the remote server encounters the parentheses and thinks it is another command token.

Recommended Fix: Escape all characters from filenames prior to executing the extract command on remote servers.

Temporary workaround: Rename the filename on the server to exclude any parentheses or other *nix characters which require escaping.
