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

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.
