# Exploit Title: WS_FTP Server 5.0.5 - Denied of Service (DoS)
# Discovery by: Fernando Mengali
# Discovery Date: 30 january 2024
# Vendor Homepage:  N/A
# Notification vendor: No reported
# Tested Version: 5.0.5
# Tested on: Window XP Professional - Service Pack 2 and 3 - English
# Vulnerability Type: Denied of Service (DoS)

#1. Description about vunerability and exploited

#His technique works fine against Windows XP Professional Service Pack 2 and 3 (English).
#For this exploit we intentionally increased the number of bytes sent to the server to process.
#We concluded that the FTP server does not correctly manage the amount of data or bytes sent and processed, causing denied service conditions.
#Successful exploitation of these issues allows remote attackers to crash the affected server, denying service to legitimate users.

#2. Proof of Concept - PoC
