[Pro] FTP concerns

I read this on the www.stopbadware.org website after one of my websites apparently had become a bit of a hazard due to something dodgy which I haven’t yet gotten to the bottom of.

“Use SSH and SFTP protocols, instead of telnet or FTP. Telnet and FTP are both considered insecure because of their use of plain text protocols. They transmit usernames and passwords in a way that anyone with access to the network can read. SSH and SFTP are based on an encrypted protocol which prevents eavesdropping.”

Considering that Freeway only allows uploading using FTP from what I can see, is there cause for concern or possibly another option for uploading from Freeway?
