that would almost work, except that they're not trying to connect to your ftp server to possibly get files (just hoping that you've got some) they're trying to get into your FTP server to establish a connection to it, which they will quickly exploit to gain access to the rest of the system
yeah but it works for the run of the mill personal server they are only really targeted by script kiddies looking for places to store their porn and wearz. i had mine set up like this for over a year and never had anything happen. i wouldn't recommend doing it on a corporate server. but thankfully in this day and age the REAL black hats are rather rare and normally go after bigger fish like major corporations and government sites.
but i agree the only way to truly be safe from hackers is to encrypt everything that has personal info on it. and back up your data regularly incase they damage something.
