of their reasons to open this was passive FTP. Their reason was a lot of

quick reply, hope this hasn't been covered ad naseum...
a solution i have seen used several places is to not allow outbound
ftp ( or other restricted services ) from all ip addresses. create seg-
ments, or "virtual lan's" for your consultants or other groups who re-
quire "privileged" access to the internet.
this is one of the ways that "consultants" often cause more harm
than they are worth. ( just my opinion, your milege may vary. )
