500 OOPS: vsftpd: refusing to run with writable root inside chroot()

During the setting up vsftpd(2.3.5-3) daemon in Debian Wheezy, I found the following error 500 OOPS: vsftpd: refusing to run with writable root inside chroot() when you try to open ftp connection to the server.This appears when chroot_local_user=YES option is enabled in /etc/vsftpd.conf.Many people had the same problem.This is BUG which is already reported.We can fix this problem with additional patch.
