Dear users,

We are sorry that somebody has found a way to break our software product. But to be clear, there is no user authentication in the product from the start. It uses the USER and PSWD commands but any user is permitted. The entire drive is shared without limitations. This is not a secured product and should be used with care. The purpose of the product is simple device management for handheld computers and forklift terminals. The server should be stopped as soon it is not need anymore. This is clearly stated on the web site:

"No configuration is required. The services defaults to port 21 as standard FTP. The entire drive (C:) where the program is started from is shared. No user authentication is possible and none is required."

Our recommendation to repeat is to start the server only when the feature is needed and stop it as soon as possible.

Sincerely

Mattias Wahlberg
