Exploit for linux platform in category dos / poc

GoAhead Web Server version prior to 3.1.3 is vulnerable to DoS. A fix exists for version 3.2.
The Web Server crashes completely once this requests is received. The vulnerability doesn't seem to be exploitable on Linux versions ... could be wrong :) !
