Management of FTP is so poor that it could be used without your knowledge. And, if you think you have prevented FTP usage by disabling your FTP server, beware. FTP clients executed via Time Sharing Option (TSO) or batch can trigger FTP activity. The exposures from FTP client activity are every bit as dangerous as those associated with the FTP Server. If in doubt, run the free William Data Systems FTP Activity Checker.

Simply download the utility. It will check for all FTP activity via your z/OS system. You have nothing to lose – except for your data.
