Yes. The default umask for lukemftpd(8) is 027. Read the ftpd.conf(5) manpage for detailed instructions on how to modify that value, but you probably want to create a /etc/ftpd.conf file and include within it: umask real 022 You should also read ftpusers(5) and make sure you've set up your users with the right classes etc. For backwards compatibility, just listing the username in /etc/ftpusers disables that account from using the FTP service. Certainly you should disable FTP access for root and all pseudo-users.
