    That's a denial of service attack, not a security vulnerability as such. Also it applies particularly to FTP servers, although perhaps it could also apply to systems which have other command line access that use glob to do file searches.

    Personally, I don't have ftp services on my servers, and the only other way to go searching files is through an ssh connection which requires keys.

    Most people wouldn't be affected by this, I doubt very many others run ftp either.

    My Hosting provider uses FTP for uploading / downloading files to their servers. While I would prefer a more secure method, I don't care too much!
