scoring system) count of 6.0. 

Vulnerable Software:
[+] Staff-FTP

Vulnerable Version(s):
[+] v3.04

Vulnerable Libraries:
[+] netapi32.dll
[+] dwmapi.dll

Proof of Concept (PoC):

For security demonstration or to reproduce the vulnerability follow the provided information and steps below to continue.

Manual steps to reproduce the local vulnerability ...
1. Compile dll and rename to Linkinfo.dll or mpr.dll
2. Copy Linkinfo.dll to C:\Program Files\Staff-FTP
