FTP user names and passwords -- secure or not?

Hi All,

When using Rev's FTP capabilities to upload a file via ftp with user name 
and password as in the syntax below:

put ... into URL "ftp://"&userName&":"&userPassword ...

is the user name and password completely secure in a distributed application 
providing the scripts are encrypted? Is it at all possible for someone to be 
able to tell what address, user name, and password are being used via 
another application such as a firewall?
