This week, CERT issued a warning about WU-FTP [1]. The patches
carry the following statement :

Disabling the WU-FTPD daemon may prevent your system from operating normally. 
Upgrading to WU-FTPD 2.6.0 may cause some inter-operability problems with 
certain FTP clients. We encourage you to review the WU-FTPD documentation 
carefully before performing this upgrade. 

libwww is one of the clients which fail.

Is anyone interested (and available) for updating the ftp module (HTFTP.c)?
