Re: mc security exposure

Hi, George!

Using the FTP feature of mc shows the password in the file transfer
screen.  See snippet below (sorry, the ASCII art didn't transfer well):

I could not reproduce this problem with the CVS version of MC.

I feel this is an exposure that need not exist.  If mc is
being used in a demonstration, or when people are around,
the initial logon can be shielded from view, but when transferring
many files, this is not practical.

I agree.
