/**
Exploit for : acFTP 1.4 DoS Exploit
Advisory : http://secunia.com/advisories/19978/
Coder : Omnipresent
Email : omnipresent@email.it
Description : Preddy has discovered a vulnerability in acFTP, which can be exploited by malicious people to cause a DoS (Denial of Service).
The vulnerability is caused due to an error within the handling of the argument passed to the 
"USER" command. This can be exploited to crash the FTP server via an overly long argument that 
contains certain character sequences.

The vulnerability has been confirmed in version 1.4. Other versions may also be affected.
