More information:

Several memory leaks were discovered in proftpd-dfsg, a versatile, virtual-hosting FTP daemon, when mod_facl or mod_sftp is used which could lead to memory exhaustion and a denial-of-service.

For Debian 8 Jessie, this problem has been fixed in version 1.3.5e-0+deb8u1.

We recommend that you upgrade your proftpd-dfsg packages.
