    inspired from Stealth's Hellkit.

    ShellForge has some wrapper functions around system calls. A C program
    that uses these system calls will use the wrapped one instead of original
    libc calls.

    To generate a shellcode, ShellForge uses gcc to convert the C program into
    assembler, from there it modifies it a bit, compiles it, extracts the
    code, encodes it to avoid NULL bytes, and finally add a decoder at the
