The problem is that anonymous access is a special case -- it's
supposed to be confined into a given subdirectory (ie: doing a
cd ../../../../../ should take you to /home/ftp on Unix).
Administrator (or Guest) are not supposed to be confined to their home
directories. If you can log in with these accounts, you're likely to
be able to traverse elsewhere in the FTP hierarchy.
