Using WinSCP .NET Assembly, is it safe? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi. We have a discussion in my team concerning installing Visual Studio on a production server. We are very careful about what to install on the production server, but reading this article on MSDN: "How to: Install an Assembly into the Global Assembly Cache"

    I tend to be of the opinion that installing VS is actually best practice in our situation, but since security is not my primary field, and not really having any one to ask, I would very much like to hear your thoughts about it too.

    Thanks in advance.

  • Is this related to SQL Server, which is the subject of this forum?

  • It really depends on what the server does. You can ask over here but they'll tell you to limit roles on the server to intended function.
