 +======2.2.9 Ensure FTP Server is not enabled (Scored)======
 +=====Profile Applicability=====  ​
 +<​code>​
 +Level 1 - Server
 +Level 1 - Workstation ​
 +</​code>​
 +
 +=====Description=====
 +The File Transfer Protocol (FTP) provides networked computers with the ability to transfer files.
 +
 +=====Rationale=====
 +FTP does not protect the confidentiality of data or authentication credentials. It is recommended sftp be used if file transfer is required. Unless there is a need to run the system as a FTP server (for example, to allow anonymous downloads), it is recommended that the package be deleted to reduce the potential attack surface.
 +
 +=====Audit===== ​
 +Run the following commands to verify ''​vsftpd''​ is not enabled:
 +<​Code:​bash>​
 +# systemctl is-enabled vsftpd
 +disabled ​

 +Verify result is not "​enabled"​.
 +
 +=====Remediation===== ​
 +Run the following command to disable ''​vsftpd'':​
 +<​Code:​bash>​
 +# systemctl disable vsftpd
 +</​Code>​
 +
 +=====Notes===== ​
 +Additional FTP servers also exist and should be audited.
