new open file error on existing connection

Hi all,

I have a Samsung Galaxy s9 running Android 8.0.0 on the 01 September 2018 security patch level.

My long standing FTPS connection to my home server has suddenly started failing when I try to open a file from the server, with the error:

file:///storage/emulated/0/Android/data/lyesoft.andftp/cache/[filename] exposed beyond app through Intent.getData()

..all the files are jpgs, so the normal result would be the image being displayed on the phone.

I can access the folder structure, and the login occurs as normal, it just won't open the file. The files are intact on the server itself, when checked directly from a PC on the network, so it appears to be an andFTP issue.

Is anyone able to provide some guidance?

Thanks in advance,
Jamie
