Default FileFactory.com claims JDownloader security issues


I got a error message in JDownloader saying the plug-in was no longer valid with an error ID.

I also got the following email:

Due to some security issues, the JDownloader app is currently incompatible with FileFactory. We do not know if we will enable access to this app again in the future.

What are the issues?

JDownloader is an open-source app, and its source code is available for anyone to view

JDownloader is not able to effectively obscure our login API key, so third parties or bots can abuse our API

JDownloader allows free users to bypass our website and create automated downloads which leech our bandwidth, creating a heavy load on our systems and slowing down speeds for our valued Premium users

In the meantime, try Internet Download Manager if you're looking for a great download manager.
The main reason I don't use Internet Download Manager (IDM) is because it doesn't decrypt files and lacks a built-in password manager. And I'm not going to pay for something that doesn't do that.

Is there some kind of beef FileFactory has with JDownloader? I've been using this plug-in with JDownloader for the last 10 years with few problems. Now all of a sudden, there's problems.


PS: I also notice I haven't had any plug-in updates for any of my other filelockers for the last couple of months. Is that unusual?
