(another in an ongoing list of things i just want to clarify for the
sake of future courses taught on centos.)
from this RHEL doc page:
the reader is advised to, for the sake of security, remove/disable
vsftpd, ostensibly in favour of sftp/sftp-server. really?
i can obviously see disallowing stuff like telnet and rsh and
rlogin, that's a no-brainer. but advising against vsftpd for the sake
of security? i'm not sure i see the logic in that. thoughts?
