Hi. I'm pen-testing an IIS 5.0 server that is insecurely set up to allow write-access to it as a web folder. However, its also set up to deny copying (or renaming to) of the following file extensions .asp, .com, .cmd, .exe, and .dll. Interestingly, it does allow .bat files to be written onto the server. Is there a way to escalate privelleges (and possibly get a command prompt) through a .bat file? Thank you,
