       ftpusers - list of users that may not log in via the FTP daemon

       The  text file ftpusers contains a list of users that may not log in using the File Trans-
       fer Protocol (FTP) server daemon. This file is used not merely for  system  administration
       purposes  but  for improving security within a TCP/IP networked environment. It will typi-
       cally contain a list of the users that either have no business using ftp or have too  many
       privileges  to  be  allowed  to	log in through the FTP server daemon.  Such users usually
       include root, daemon, bin, uucp, and news.  If your FTP server daemon doesn't use ftpusers
       then  it  is suggested that you read its documentation to find out how to block access for
       certain users. Washington University FTP server Daemon (wuftpd) and Professional FTP  Dae-
       mon (proftpd) are known to make use of ftpusers.

       The  format of ftpusers is very simple. There is one account name (or user name) per line.
       Lines starting with a # are ignored.
