Do you have patch manager? If so you could consider a custom definition to detect it. Alternatively, if you know the shrtcut name with 100% certainty, you could add the shortcut extension to the ldappl3.template file and then add the filename to the file list for software scanning. Sort of depends on what you want to do with the info.
