What is a dzug?

I moved the dzug.c from the null directory to xSports,
where it actually belongs to.

What is a D-Zug? Besides being an exploit for CVE-2012-3524,
a D-Zug (german: Durchgangs-Zug) was a fast kind of train
in the 70's and 80's. Nowadays its obsoleted by high speed
trains like ICE (similar to TGV in France).
dzug.c, also kind of a 80's style of living, integrates a lot of
attack vectors to proof CVE-2012-3524 exploitable.
There exist a lot of flavors of dzug.c, so
if this PoC version is not working for you, it means
indeed nothing. Its also not bound to Linux. Theoretically any
UNIX running DBUS is at risk.
