Ftp hack???


Hello All,
I usually chcek my server logs on daily basis.For last one month I have been observing some specific lines in my logs;

date *.*.* server prodtpd[12589]erver.foo.com ( www.xyz.com[IP address]])ftp: Directory ~ftp/ is not accessible
date *.*.* server prodtpd[12589]erver.foo.com ( www.xyz.com[IP address]])ftp: Directory ~ftp/ is not accessible
date *.*.* server prodtpd[12589]erver.foo.com ( www.xyz.com[IP address]])ftp: Directory ~ftp/ is not accessible

i think someone is trying to access ftp/ directory unofficially.He/She might trying it as http://www.foo.com/~ftp/ etc ,I mean they are trying to access ftp with ftp as user ?
or I think someone is scanning the ports on daily basis!!!
Or I am wrong?
What this all lines?
Help needed!!
Thank you!!!

Is your ftp server running with Anonymous FTP enabled?

If you do not own the server you will not be able to see it.

however if you do own the server you can check it by doing the following:

Go to FTP Configuration

It should look like the following if Anonymous FTP is disabled:

Anonymous Ftp is currently: disabled
