Its 2022 and the Insecure FTP Protocol Still Offered

Post by Sn3akyP3t3 »

Consider this both a feature request and also notification of a product vulnerability. Continued offering of FTP as a supported file transfer protocol is unwise due to its insecure nature. All major modern browsers have long since stopped offering FTP as an option available out of box because of the risks it poses with continued use. It would be wise for 2BrightSparks to take notice of what is now industry standard and follow the practice of ending use of insecure protocols, despite popularity, with a determined end of life date.

I understand this is going to raise a lot of hairs with those that currently use this feature. If that is the case it would be wise for users to formulate a migration strategy that aligns with the end of life cutoff to a secure transfer protocol such as SFTP.
