  • Yes, definitely. The attackers can easily attack using FTP atleast avoid regular FTP. If attackers are sniffing passwords, FTP might be one way they're building a password dictionary. Don't use your root or user account passwords as your ftp account passwords - and if possible don't allow ftp for user accounts.
