There have been reports this weekend of hacked websites that are serving up source code for VSFTP that contain backdoor code.  The compromise has been confirmed by the programs creator.  Thanks to benm for providing the heads up for the compromise.

this happened to proftpd last year. http://www.h-online.com/open/news/item/Back-door-in-ProFTPD-FTP-server-1146592.html

it's a good thing i use a linux distribution that isn't very susceptible to package tampering, unless i stray from official sources.
