Huge Security Hole Leaves Entire Pro Tools 11 And Avid Beta Download Servers Open To Public

We’ve been alerted to a security vulnerability that leaves the entire Avid Pro Tools ftp beta servers open for public download.
We have tested this and it is indeed the case, it would seem someone has not stopped the server being open to public access.
No personal data or customer data is being exposed, this is simply the beta servers that hold future releases of Avid software in beta format, you also need iLok licences to run these applications.
This is simply a case of poor security on the beta servers, many other vendors put password controls on these servers just in case, it does not bode well for ensuring any Avid trade secrets remain that way for long.
