Why is anonymous FTP disabled?

To help secure our network and access to customer accounts, we have disabled anonymous FTP connections. Anonymous access enables a user to connect to a system through FTP without the need of a username and password. Through that anonymous FTP connection, the user has the potential to upload and distribute any type of content through your account resources without your knowledge. For example, a user could FTP into your account, upload a large number of music files for public distribution. As the account owner, you would be held accountable for any and all bandwidth overages and damages caused by the distribution of the music files.
