No, it is in fact not fixed.  We are still vulnerable.  I have confirmed
this myself with the proftpd packages from security.debian.org.

The proftpd maintainer created an unofficial security fix package which
inserted a rule into proftpd.conf denying the regex that caused the DoS
problem.  That unofficial package, or conceivably the package from woody
or sid, is the only safe proftpd package available for Debian.

If you don't believe me, try it...
