 wu-ftpd - WITH Security fixes - Binaries wanted

To clarify this statement ...  wu-ftpd-2.4 is being currently
maintained and updated by Stan Barber (  
The most current release can be found at:

The wu-ftpd fix-kit from *Hobbit* ( can be
found at
I would strongly recommend that anyone running wu-ftpd-2.4
patch their source with the fixkit and rebuild the server.

Stan Barber has merged the fixkit with other patches in the
wu-ftpd-2.4.2-academ-BETA* distributions.

All of my changes to wu-ftpd-2.4.2-academ-[BETA8] are minor and
largely cosmetic.

Much as I like the credit, it belongs to *Hobbit* and Stan
