Yes, it's "safe".  Check the security advisories for the history of
security problems, and then compare to third-party ftpd security
vulnerabilities.  ftpd has a better track record than most.

The real question is "does the stock ftpd do everything you want, or
do you need features that can only be found in third party ftpds?"
