        This module uses Diamorphine rootkit's privesc feature using signal
        64 to elevate the privileges of arbitrary processes to UID 0 (root).

        This module has been tested successfully with Diamorphine from `master`
        branch (2019-10-04) on Linux Mint 19 kernel 4.15.0-20-generic (x64).
