Hey Dan,
I noticed in the list of recent articles you are using ProFTPD now. I just read on rootshell.org that a pretty serious exploit was discovered. Just thought you might like to know. Here's the link...

Thanks. That exploit was fixed some time ago. The exploit was in version 1.2.0pre1. The latest version is 1.2.0pre10.

The URL you provided mentions: "Fix: will be incorporated into 1.2.0pre2.". I have a version which is later than that.

Thanks for your warning though. It is appreciated.

Hmm, you're right. I didn't read the date. Oh well, no harm was done. Later.
