The remote FTP server is susceptible to a denial of service attack.
The installed version of PlatinumFTPserver on the remote host suffers
from a denial of service vulnerability. Specifically, when a user
tries to login with a username containing a backslash, '\', the
application displays a dialog box and stops the login process until an
administrator acknowledges a message. After several such connection
attempts, the ftp server daemon reportedly crashes.
