Subject: proftpd: Apply a patch for reject non-listed users.

Package: proftpd

In the following address

There is a patch for rejecting non-listed users.

The patch successfully rejects users not listed in a customised passwd
file, enabling the security of avoiding valid ssh users to try (and
fail) an ftp login.

Since whithin a system where only valid ssh accounts exist but there is
an anonymous ftp server users can try to log, the passwd is sent in
unencrypted format.

The patch allows the admin to reject the login upon entering the
username, not even reaching the point where the passwd is sent.
