Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test
The remote ftp server is prone to denial of service attacks.

It was possible to disable the remote FTP server by connecting to it
about 3000 separate times. If the remote server is running from
within [x]inetd, this is a feature and the FTP server should
automatically be back in a couple of minutes. A possible hacker may use
this flaw to prevent this service from working properly.
