As a web-designer I recently had a lot of trouble with the gumblar trojan which could steal my ftp credentials (Note: I can not tell if it was stolen from dreamweaver or filezilla...).
A question which came to my mind was: how can I prevent this kind of ftp credential theft to happen again and what could a developer of ftp clients possibly do to help me prevent such theft?
