You need to identify what is the file browser that MobaXterm uses. Has it (the browser) got a Help button? If it does, About will usually tell you what it is. If you can't find instructions from following the link in the above post, you might like to try Midnight Commander, available from the project page

You need to patch do_readdir in this file
http://www.openbsd.org/cgi-bin/cvsweb/src/usr.bin/ssh/sftp-server.c
And then re-compose the package for your server system
Then sftp will see no dot files (or no mp3 files, or no files bigger than 100KB - as you prefer)
All config options are re-settable by users...
