Convert 403 to 404

Be default, users get 403 error when accessing unauthorized folders. Some security gurus prefer to change it to 404, they think it’s dangous to let hackers know that folder existing on web server.

The trick is simple, hide the folder:

attrib +h folder_to_hide

This will give developers hard time to see this hidden folder in dev mode, they have to figure out how to show this hidder folder in their ftp tools.

WS_FTP: open file mask on remote server view, add “-la” in arg box.
