Are the risks of using FTP essentially the same as the risks of using HTTP? That is my current understanding, and reading an answer (Risks of using HTTP when I trust the local network) on the topic seems to offer little help.
Let's say I am moving backend code via FTP. Is there really a risk of someone getting the code if there is no one tapped between my computer and my modem? Is the main concern someone at the internet provider company reading it?
