Description slevin 2009-09-25 12:20:23 UTC
At this moment, FTP-account info (login/password) are stored in text files.
Password is coded with a simple shift cipher (with substitution = 13th), which is really unsecure.
I suppose, there should by used at least more complicated cipher
Comment 1 Tomas Mysik 2009-11-25 03:44:12 UTC
There's a warning about it and some more general solution should be used (IMHO any kind of keystore for NB should be implemented).
Comment 2 Tomas Mysik 2009-12-07 08:28:06 UTC
Will be fixed after bug #173413 is closed.
Comment 3 Tomas Mysik 2010-01-20 05:59:15 UTC
Fixed, Filipe please verify, it is _very_ important (FTP/SFTP passwords should be removed from nbproject directory but should not be lost). Thanks a lot.

Integrated into 'main-golden', will be available in build *201001240200* on (upload may still be in progress)

not possible to verify ... looks like something is wrong because no action/no keyring appeared.
