One particular problem is that users will log in and then have read access to the entire server. They will log in and use the command cd .. which will take them to the /home directory and then on to the / directory. You do not want all users to be able to do this as it presents a security issue. So restrict them by holding them to their directory only.
You will need to edit the /etc/vsftpd.conf file in order to make changes.
Restrict Users to their home directory
