Description (last modified by dkocher)

Hi

When opening Cyberduck, I am receiving the following message:

Unsecured FTP connection
Password will be sent in plaintext
Continue/Disconnect

What are the dangers of sending a password in plain text? Has something changed? This only occurred last week.

Thanks

Nigel

It means just what it says. The connection is not encrypted and the password is sent over the wire in plain text.
