New proftpd packages are available for Slackware 8.1, 9.0, 9.1, 10.0, 10.1, 10.2, and 11.0 to fix security issues.

More details about this issue may be found in the Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE) database:

Here are the details from the Slackware 11.0 ChangeLog:
Upgraded to proftpd-1.3.0a plus an additional security patch. Several
security issues were found in proftpd that could lead to the execution of
arbitrary code by a remote attacker, including one in mod_tls that does
not require the attacker to be authenticated first.
