FileZilla is a fast and reliable FTP client and server with lots of useful features and an intuitive interface.
Reviewing 3.6.0 (Nov 12, 2012)
As a basic and free FTP solution, FileZilla was great. I'd been using FileZilla for years until around 2009 when it came to my attention there was a *GAPING* security problem with it. If you're using it on a personal computer I'd say you're safe if no one ever gets at your machine (root, remote, or otherwise) but in a kiosk or public PC environment, you would be nuts to use it. FileZilla's Achilles Heel is the fact that is stores password in *plain text* in a file called sitemanager.xml? The author had commented on why he didn't want to *fix* this problem by hashing or encrypting the passwords. He's basically said he'll never fix this problem, deal with it. Yeah, no thanks. I switched to WinSCP for SFTP stuff and never looked back. There is NO excuse for passwords in plaintext in known directory/folder locations that can be readily exploited by hackers and thieves. If he ever fixes it, I will change my rating to 5 stars.

AGree with @stisev FileZilla V2 is better.
Reviewing 3.5.2 RC1 (Nov 5, 2011)
FileZilla 2.x used to be the best. Thanks to the stubborn author and clearly poor programming and regressing bugs, FileZilla 3.x is irreparably ruined. A damn shame.
Use alternatives like WinSCP.
Reviewing 3.5.1 RC1 (Aug 22, 2011)
I used to be a big proponent of FileZilla until it was brought to my attention that it will store passwords in cleartext in a file (sitemanager.xml) that any user with access to the machine can harvest. That is bad and the author says it's by design. As a client, it does the job, but for that security hole that is many, many years old, it gets epic fail. If the author ever fixes the security hole, I would be happy to give it 5 stars. But for continuing to make the excuse of "by design", two stars off.
