    Thanks for the story, Lonewolf. Personally, I am greatful there are people out there who can find stuff like this and then share that info with us common folks.
    A big thanks also, to Jacques at Prevx, for finding that issue.

    FTP sends all data in the clear, even passwords and usernames, a sniffer could get them easily.

    I think that anyone who cares about security will be using SFTP or FTPS (FTP over SSL).
