I still see this a simple matter of violating KISS to introduce a layer of encryption.
The question is, to which end? Sure, an attacker might see the encrypted
file and think it's "too difficult" for him to get to the passwords. Another
might use a certain utility to decrypt the said file. The thing is, to which end are
we encrypting the data? Just for the sake of making it work like the N other programs?
I mean, if this doesn't *work*, why even *bother*?

Sorry, but your comments are totally useless here and can't even
really be addressed properly, given their quite ridiculous nature. You
are missing the point of the encryption, and it is not my job to
convince you, and any further comments with anyone other than the
developer are useless.


There is no question here. There is no discussion. It should be done,
and if it is not, password saving should be stopped in FileZilla or an
alternative program should be sought. It's that simple.

Great. If it's so simple that it can be done in under 10 mins, go complain
to them.

This email thread *is* a direct complaint to them, after bugs have
been closed for years. I didn't start this thread. Do you even
understand what is going on here? Your emails suggest you do not.


Cheers,
Chris.
