ZitaFTP Server and Why You Should Use FTPS instead of Plain FTP By Kea Sigma Delta 

Source: Sniffing/Stealing FTP Passwords; Or, Why You Should Use FTPS instead of Plain FTP » Kea Sigma Delta

Plain FTP is insecure, and it’s pretty easy to sniff your username and password. Anyone who manages to connect to your network can capture network traffic, sniff out your FTP password, and then access/steal your files. Tools to do so are readily available.

The bottom line is: do NOT use plain FTP for file transfer if you value your data. Or, stick to plain FTP and risk being hacked. It’s up to you.

Personally, I value security. That’s why I wrote ZitaFTP Server. It’s a secure FTP server (i.e., an FTPS server). The password sniffing techniques shown above only work with plain FTP (and HTTP), and fail the moment secure connections are used. I highly recommend you stop using insecure plain FTP, and use FTPS instead. Yes, even within your own private network.

AmigaONE X5000 is almost here..

After the success of the AmigaONE X1000 it quickly came apparent that using a end of life CPU was not a going to be a long term solution going forward as unfortunately demand out striped supply and the CPU prices started to go up and so it was never possible to decrease cost of the nemo board, a new solution was needed to really support the Amiga platform going forward so a £1.2 Million contract was signed to ensure this and a new motherboad would be needed. Project Cyrus began, the goal was simple to replace the X1000 with the goal of making it more affordable if possible and future proof the motherboard and have long term support in place, part of the contract with the makers of the system Varisys is that the board is to have at least 10 year support and this time the CPU in PPC terms to be used was to be the very latest CPU core and the motherboard was designed from the outset to be able to use three different CPU chips this not only gives A-EON options for the future but also protects them selves with falling into the same trap.
