WinPwnage meaning is to study the techniques. Techniques are found online, on different blogs and repos here on GitHub. I do not take credit for any of the findings, thanks to all the researchers.

Rewrote them and ported it to Python 2.7. The code under todo folders are not tested, do not expect it to work.
