WFTPD unpatched exploit and potential DDoS against anti-spyware forums

K-OTik Security submitted information in regards to an WFTPD Server / WFTPD Pro Server exploit. This is an overflow that can allow a logged in user to run arbitrary code as a SYSTEM or the user that started WFTPD (depending on the version) More information:

There's already an exploit for this, and the developer hasn't released a patch for the tested versions (3.21 & 3.10, both regular and Pro versions)

Someone pointed out that at least one of the anti-Spyware forums have been having problems with DoS attacks. More information can be found at:
