    Searching google for the term ftpquickbrute this appears to be a part of a shell script and, IMO, could be trouble. If you're not comfortable checking your own server for security issues you might want to look into hiring someone to help, right now.

    Wow! Kind of like bad seafood --- just keeps coming back! :rolleyes:

    InfoPro is 100% correct, you need to thoroughly check your server. :cool:

    I'm not so much concerned with this script itself as it is really a means to an end but what could be done with this and in my experience, whenever this one shows up --- it's usually not a good sign.
