Customers who experience the problems switching are welcomed to bypass the normal support procedure and submit a ticket directly at

    Is this a really serious security hole? I have lots of problems with pureftpd and don't want to switch.

    On WHM, there is a little Severity meter under the message, and it goes all the way up to dark red, which I think is the max. So I think it's a critical exploit.
