I have just updated the WinSCP to the latest version 5.9.2 and started to have some problems with some of SFTP accounts.
I mainly use WinSCP via scripting like so:
#--> This script was created by SQL <--#
# Automatically abort script on errors
option batch abort
# Disable overwrite confirmations that conflict with the previous
option confirm off
open sftp://citmeddv:******@ftp.it.******.com/ -hostkey="*" -timeout=120
# Command Line
# Exit WinSCP
#--> EOF This script was created by SQL <--#
And this is generating an error:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<session xmlns="http://winscp.net/schema/session/1.0" name="firstname.lastname@example.org" start="2016-09-28T06:16:58.867Z">
<message>Key-exchange algorithm diffie-hellman-group1-sha1 was not verified!</message>
In the details we have:
. 2016-09-28 07:16:59.148 Enumerating network events for socket 1908
. 2016-09-28 07:16:59.148 Enumerated 1 network events making 1 cumulative events for socket 1908

. 2016-09-28 07:16:59.148 Selecting events 0 for socket 1908
Is there a workaround for this problem?
I already saw the KEX option but I don't know how to implement it.

This should do:
Though, obviously, the correct solution to upgrade your server not to use an insecure KEX.
