Malicious users can have the ability to deny services or access. They utilize a handcrafted URL, which has the ability to overwrite .ssh files found in the root directory. It generates specific keys or codes that cause denial of access once used. This can be problematic for resellers and even for users, especially if they cannot access specific functionality as promised by the system.
