Disable FTP clear/plain text authentication

Discussion in 'FTP' started by szuranski, Mar 12, 2015.

  1. After a PCI scan is done on our website the following error is returned.

    The server supports authentication methods in which credentials are sent in plaintext over unencrypted channels. If an attacker were to intercept traffic between a client and this server, the credentials would be exposed.

    The suggested solution is to disable plaintext authentication or enable encryption. Can you tell me how this can be done?
