The remote FTP server has a remote buffer overflow vulnerability.
It was possible to make the remote FTP server crash by creating a
huge directory structure. This is usually called the 'wu-ftpd buffer
overflow' even though it affects other FTP servers.
An attacker can exploit this issue to crash the FTP server, or
execute arbitrary code.
Upgrade to the latest version of the FTP server. Consider removing
directories writable by 'anonymous'.
