Site Manager import treats base64 encoded password as plain text password

Reported by: Dmitry Kornienko Owned by:
Priority: high Component: FileZilla Client
Keywords: base64 password Cc:
Component version: Operating system type: Windows
Operating system version: Windows 7 SP1


When importing a Site Manager entry, the Base64-encoded password entry is treated as a plain-text password.

Steps to reproduce ( and 3.10.2-rc2):
1) File -> Export -> Export Site Manager entries
2) XML file contains a Base64-encoded password string, which correctly decodes to the plain-text password
3) Import the Site Manager entry
4) Password to the FTP site is not accepted anymore by the remote server
5) Repeat Site Manager Export
6) XML file contains a different, longer Base64-encoded password string, which decodes to a Base64-encoded password string from step 2, not the correct plain-text password

Import works fine for me in 3.10.2-rc2.

Are you trying to export a file in the new version only to import it in the old version?

If so, that's not a supported use case. Only forward compatibility is maintained.
