You would have to change umask in sshd's user's profile to perhaps have
any effect.

You may want to check the receiving directory DACLs with getfacl .../
and if necessary change them with setfacl -m d:g::r--,d:o::r-- if only
data is being transferred to that directory.

Removing directory DACLs e.g. with setfacl -bk .../ can stop Windows
programs being able to read or write directories or contents.

Get them to set the permissions chmod +r on the source if possible,
and send with scp -p.

Take care. Thanks, Brian Inglis, Calgary, Alberta, Canada
