/*
*
* Introduction
* This native code file aims to be complementary to the published Whatsapp GIF RCE exploit by Awakened , by calculating the system() function address and ROP gadget address for different types of devices, which then can be used to successfully exploit the vulnerability.
* The full Android application code is available at the following link https://github.com/valbrux/CVE-2019-11932-SupportApp
