Squirt: Auto Updating WordPress Plugins

Am I missing something with the auto-updates for WordPress plugins? When I try to do an auto-update, I get a page asking me for the ftp(s) info for my server. I’m expected to:

  1. send ftps info unencrypted through the browser
  2. send my credentials to an untrusted third party
  3. open up my firewall so any ol’ IP can ftps to my server

Right.

Hey, like this post? Why not share it with a buddy?
