Synopsis :

There is a 'guest' account on the remote FTP server.

Description :

This is usually not a good thing, since very often, this account will
not run in a chrooted environment, so an attacker will be very likely
to use it to break into this system.

Note that this plugin only tests for guest accounts over FTP.

Disable this FTP account.
