Default Yes, the BBC still uses FTP. And yes, a Russian crook hacked the server

From http://www.theregister.co.uk/2013/12/30/bbc_ftp_server/

A BBC FTP server ftp.bbc.co.uk was compromised by a Russian hacker and access to it touted online, say computer security researchers.

The miscreant behind the attack on the internet-facing file store tried to sell access to the infiltrated system to other crims on Christmas Day, we're told.
