Disabling all Plesk FTP users


I am seeing many illegal users in my logWatch. I want to disable all ftp accounts of the server except two.

I googled and found

but its giving tip to disable all ftp service whereas I want that two specific ftp account must remain open and rest of the ftp account should be disabled.

Please advise

Thanks in anticipation
