The agent is configured to allow unencrypted connections, which may
allow passwords, that are transmitted in cleartext, to be sniffed.
In addition, it is possible to brute-force login/passwords on the
remote host using this agent.
Configure Cheops to run on top of SSL or block this port from outside
communication if you want to further restrict the use of Cheops.
