    I just ran the first two against a fully patched RH9 system with no luck.
    ptrace kept running in memory. The other is also the kernel exploit which has
    been patched by every distro out there

    [wind@wind0 wind]$ chmod +x egx
    [wind@wind0 wind]$ ./egx
    [-] Unable to change page protection: Cannot allocate memory
    [-] Unable to exit, entering neverending loop.

    [1]+ Stopped ./egx
    [wind@wind0 wind]$
    [wind@wind0 wind]$ uname -r
