What are the disadvantages of FTP?

2 weeks ago

FTP is not a secure protocol. FTP sends and receives all data in clear text and is, hence, vulnerable to packet capture or sniffing, port stealing, spoof attacks, bounce attacks, brute force attacks and user name hijacking.

FTPS, not to be confused with SFTP, is an extension of the standard FTP that allows the FTP clients to request an encrypted session.
