    Cartel security team has found a buffer overflow in the A-FTP anonymous
    FTP server,
    which means that an attacker can execute a denial of service attack
    against it.
    Once the big buffer has been sent, the server is vulnerable.
    Only one more connection is needed to make the FTP service unavailable.

    extra Notes:

    If noone tries to login before the attacker's logout, the server will
    still work.
    Here comes a fully working exploit given as a proof of concept for
    educational purpose
    This exploit has been fully coded in Win32 assembly language.
    Cartel security team can't be held responsible for anything you do with
    this file.


    220 Anonymous FTP Server Ready
    USER [buffer]

    [buffer] is around 2048 characters. (more or less)
    It now needs a connection in order to crash.
    Something like a : "ftp ip" will do the trick.
    result : FTP service is unavaiable.
