  1. Hi, I just thought I’d let you know that Proftpd 1.3.3c installs downloaded between November 28th and December 2nd have been backdoored with a root shell by hackers, people can see an explanation of the backdoor on my blog – there is also a script to check if your server is vulnerable.

    Great blog keep up the good work !
