A while back, (about 1 month ago), I submitted an NTFS DoS vulnerability on exploit-db. It got accepted and is currently on the website, but I do not quite understand how the vulnerability works, and why it does not work on Windows 10.
The bug references C:/$MFT in html.
<img src="C:\$MFT">. Once this code is in a webpage, anyone not running higher than Windows 8.1 will crash. This could even apply to this post, but of course it isnt, as this website allows for HTML code in a post.
How does this bug work? What causes the system to crash?
