    I had anonymous ftp enabled on my server. By default a ftp user should only see the incoming folder. However - users were able to navigate up and see content of other folders in the users home directory. They could not do anything but I think even seeing the content of other folders is a big security issue.

    I turned anonymous ftp off as a result. However - in case it needs to be turned on - how can I prevent users from going up and to see content of other folders on the server?

    I am on RHE + all patches and latest stable release of cpanel.
