Vulnerability Details:

AbsoluteTelnet will execute arbitrary code via DLL "stauto32.dll" from CWD

named "stauto32.dll" exists in this case on desktop. The DLL will be
executed when
AbsoluteTelnet is run. Other scenarios may include connecting to or opening
documents from a network share where an attacker has compromised that share.
