suspicious-ftp-lib-usage (S321)#

Derived from the flake8-bandit linter.

What it does#

Checks for the use of FTP-related functions.

Why is this bad?#

FTP is considered insecure as it does not encrypt data sent over the connection and is thus vulnerable to numerous attacks.

Instead, consider using FTPS (which secures FTP using SSL/TLS) or SFTP.
