    Hello All,
    I usually chcek my server logs on daily basis.For last one month I have been observing some specific lines in my logs;

    date *.*.* server prodtpd[12589]:server.foo.com ( www.xyz.com[IP address]])ftp: Directory ~ftp/ is not accessible
    date *.*.* server prodtpd[12589]:server.foo.com ( www.xyz.com[IP address]])ftp: Directory ~ftp/ is not accessible
    date *.*.* server prodtpd[12589]:server.foo.com ( www.xyz.com[IP address]])ftp: Directory ~ftp/ is not accessible

    i think someone is trying to access ftp/ directory unofficially.He/She might trying it as http://www.foo.com/~ftp/ etc ,I mean they are trying to access ftp with ftp as user ?
    or I think someone is scanning the ports on daily basis!!!
    Or I am wrong?
    What this all lines?
    Help needed!!
    Thank you!!!

    Go on, have a guess
    Make sure that you have anonymous FTP disabled in WHM > FTP Configuration, otherwise you open yourself up to this kind of attack.
