Everyone who uses encrypted FTP connections (FTPES, FTPS), might have seen this message while trying to connect using the new version FileZilla 3.5.3

"GnuTLS error -12 when trying to connect to with Explicit TLS"

The reason is that the unsecure chiper 3DES-CBC finally got removed.

To solve the problem, edit /etc/vsftpd.conf at your server (or ask the server administrator) and restart vsftpd using "/etc/init.d/vsftpd restart". It increases the security of the FTP-server dramatically. Add following line to the VSFTPD configuration file:

ssl_ciphers=HIGH
