It doesn't sound like this applies to proftp, is that true?

  Subject: Unix and Linux Server FTP vulnerability found 

  I am attaching an article that I read this morning, that anyone on the
  list concerned with getting hacked, should read!  Especially those of
  you who are allowing FTP connections.

  For myself, I am going to close FTP on my firewall until I have a chance
  to dig further into this one.
