"And what do we have for our contestant here on the Let's Be a Smartass Show? That's right! A compromised FTP account! Congratulations!"

I'm sure you were trying to be clever here, but sorry... Try again.

He's concerned (quite justifiably) because the FTP protocol is inherently insecure, sending the login and password in cleartext over the network. It's not that he's worried about a packet sniffer intercepting the Now Playing images... It's the password that is of concern here.

I'll contact the author of Now Playing and see if we can't investigate a more secure method of transferring the images.
