           Summary: scp doesn't check that target is a directory
           Product: Portable OpenSSH
           Version: 4.2p1
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: scp
        AssignedTo: bitbucket at mindrot.org
        ReportedBy: bradford.smith at usermail.com

If a, b, c and d are all local files and I execute:

scp a b c d

I expect scp to fail because d is not a directory.  Instead, scp

cp a d
cp b d
cp c d

Overwriting d three times.
