|[[vsftpd]] (Very Secure FTP Daemon)

|[[Active Directory]]
|GPLv2
+
|?
|Linux, BSD, and more
+
|{{yes}}
|Supports standard [[FTP]] and secure [[FTPS]] protocols. Builtin mechanisms allow implicit and explicit mode of FTPS. Security is achieved by using of external SSL library, which simplify the source code of the server. An unusual feature is the ability to force anonymous connections through SSL encryption, thus increasing overall security of anonymous file transfers. SSLv1, SSLv2 and TLS protocols are provided. Optionally validation of client certificates can be configured. The access of users can be controlled by deny and enable lists. The server can be configured to generate detailed activity logs - the log format may be verbose or compatible with wu-ftpd format. [[vsftpd]] is default FTP daemon in [[Ubuntu (operating system)|Ubuntu]], [[CentOS]], [[Fedora (operating system)|Fedora]], [[NimbleX]] and [[RHEL]]. Others like [[Slackware]] and [[Debian]] require an additional installation. The licensing model of vsftd is GPLv2 with exception which allows linking with OpenSSL library.

If this is a false positive, then you're right, and the bot is wrong - you don't need to explain why.
