    Searched the forums, but to no avail.

    Today was logged in one of my servers and I see proftpd spawning many processes. I ran pstree and found that there were around 160+ processes ! Luckily I was logged in and shut down proftpd and then later upgraded it to the latest version. But it started again.. and had to shut proftpd down for a while

    On checking it after a couple of minutes, it seemed normal. Has anyone had this issue before ?

    Check /var/log/messages. I suspect you will find an IP trying to connect to every site on your server. Block their IP with your firewall to stop them.
