People are not reading the source code, much less the commit message where it originated.

This PR addresses that issue inelegantly by explaining the caveat in both the module description and the module documentation:

needs to be set to 0 for exploitation to succeed against Windows Server 2008 R2.
This is a non-standard configuration for normal servers, and the target will crash if
the aforementioned Registry key is not set!

In automatic mode, there is additionally a print reminding the user to check fDisableCam.

Release Notes

This improves the visibility of a particularly important exploitation caveat for Windows Server 2008 R2 while using the BlueKeep exploit. A Windows Registry key must be modified on vulnerable, standard configurations for exploitation to succeed. Otherwise, the target will crash.
