I'm concerned about the security implications of this, we have a credential based system and SSL certs, is this all for not since the files are apparently available to the outside via direct link anyway?? I was expecting the link to prompt you for a username and password, but this is not the case, clicking the link will directly prompt you to download the file.
If anyone has any information or advice regarding the security implications of this feature, it would be appreciated.

if not, is there an option to download file without user and pass?
or like in Flashget to enter user & Pass for every download (like Rapidshare).
