          This module attempts to exploit a netfilter bug on Linux Kernels befoe 4.6.3, and currently
          only works against Ubuntu 16.04 (not 16.04.1) with kernel
          4.4.0-21-generic.
          Several conditions have to be met for successful exploitation:
          Ubuntu:
          1. ip_tables.ko (ubuntu), iptable_raw (fedora) has to be loaded (root running iptables -L will do such)
          2. libc6-dev-i386 (ubuntu), glibc-devel.i686  & libgcc.i686 (fedora) needs to be installed to compile
          Kernel 4.4.0-31-generic and newer are not vulnerable.

          We write the ascii files and compile on target instead of locally since metasm bombs for not
          having cdefs.h (even if locally installed)
        },
