    I posted a post but it got (REMOVED??)

    I have problems with ALL my servers being "ftped" into at will but only restricted to accounts. My problem is how they found a hole in pure-ftpd to log into the user accounts.

    It only seems to be one at a time and nothing else is compromised (yes i checked).

    ANY IDEAS? Im frustrated!

    Example log:

    Tue Mar 20 01:38:12 2007 0 69.202.151.7 62 /home/xxx/public_html/redirect/.htaccess b _ i r xxx ftp 1 * c
    Tue Mar 20 01:38:14 2007 0 69.202.151.7 10 /home/xxx/public_html/redirect/index.php a _ i r xxx ftp 1 * c
    Tue Mar 20 01:38:47 2007 2 69.202.151.7 62 /home/xxx/public_html/teach/.htaccess b _ o r xxx ftp 1 * c
    Tue Mar 20 01:39:02 2007 0 69.202.151.7 66 /home/xxx/public_html/teach/.htaccess b _ i r xxx ftp 1 * c

    Maybe brute force attacks. Install LFD is the quickest solution to that. It can be found at configserver.com and installs in three seconds. There has been a lot of talk about ftp getting hacked though. I haven't heard of any definitive evidence that it has a security vulnerability, but I'm about a week out of the loop.
