New proftpd packages are available for Slackware 11.0, 12.0, 12.1, 12.2, 13.0,
13.1, and -current to a fix security issue.

Here are the details from the Slackware 13.1 ChangeLog:
patches/packages/proftpd-1.3.3c-i486-1_slack13.1.txz: Upgraded.
Fixed Telnet IAC stack overflow vulnerability (ZDI-CAN-925), which can
allow remote execution of arbitrary code as the user running the
ProFTPD daemon. Thanks to TippingPoint and the Zero Day Initiative (ZDI).
For more information, see:
