"The Auth API in ProFTPD before 20070417, when multiple simultaneous
authentication modules are configured, does not require that the module that
checks authentication is the same as the module that retrieves authentication
data, which might allow remote attackers to bypass authentication, as
demonstrated by use of SQLAuthTypes Plaintext in mod_sql, with data retrieved
from /etc/passwd."
