|Stable release||3.0.2 / September 18, 2012|
|Operating system||Unix-like systems|
vsftpd supports explicit (since 2.0.0) and implicit (since 2.1.0) FTPS.
Compared to other ftp server software vsftpd is built to be especially efficient and very secure.
In July 2011, it was discovered that vsftpd version 2.3.4 downloadable from the master site had been compromised. Users logging into a compromised vsftpd-2.3.4 server may issue a ":)" smileyface as the username and gain a command shell on port 6200. This was not an issue of a security hole in vsftpd, instead, someone[clarification needed] had uploaded a different version of vsftpd which contained a backdoor. Since then, the site was moved to Google App Engine.
