          This module exploits a code execution vulnerability within the ASUS 
          TM-AC1900 router as an authenicated user. The vulnerability is due to 
          a failure filter out percent encoded newline characters (%0a) within 
          the HTTP argument 'SystemCmd' when invoking "/apply.cgi" which bypasses 
          the patch for CVE-2018-9285.
