Better question: people are *STILL* using ProFTPD? I'm astonished.

(actually I'm not, but I digress)

Try Googling 'proftpd remote root' sometime (or any similar query) if you want to be convinced into trying something that's not equivalent to giving crackers a free shell host. Try e.g. vsftpd or pureftpd if your client insists on FTP.
