Got yr point -- my guess is you did not use a process to shift files out of the the upload directory as soon as they arrived. That way they can be monitored and never downloaded. 
I think it is up to each administrator to solve the problems. If you happen to have an answer to my original question -- a reliable source of info about ftp configuration it would be useful. It is a long time since I ran an ftp server and I am rusty.
I ran a large number of ftp servers for a long time and suffered many hacking attempts but none succeeded on my watch. I agree it is not easy - but necessary
