Name        : proftpd
Product     : Fedora 21
Version     : 1.3.5
Release     : 5.fc21
URL         : http://www.proftpd.org/
Summary     : Flexible, stable and highly-configurable FTP server
Description :
ProFTPD is an enhanced FTP server with a focus toward simplicity, security,
and ease of configuration. It features a very Apache-like configuration
syntax, and a highly customizable server infrastructure, including support for
multiple 'virtual' FTP servers, anonymous FTP, and permission-based directory

This package defaults to the standalone behavior of ProFTPD, but all the
needed scripts to have it run by xinetd instead are included.

Update Information:

Vadim Melihow reported a critical issue with proftpd installations that use the mod_copy module's SITE CPFR/SITE CPTO commands; mod_copy allows these commands to be used by unauthenticated clients

Upstream report: http://bugs.proftpd.org/show_bug.cgi?id=4169

Note that mod_copy is not loaded/enabled by default in the Fedora package.
