\r and perhaps other code sequences are replaced while displaying custom variables.

Expected Behavior

If using vars.path='c:\\remote' I expect to see path c:\remote on service page.

Current Behavior

If using vars.path='c:\\remote' I get path c:
emote on service page.


Possible Solution

use encodeHtml for displaying custom variables.

Steps to Reproduce (for bugs)

create a service with custom variable like vars.path=c:\\remote and watch it at /icingaweb2/monitoring/service/show?...
