Re: non-process-terminating shellcode

Many of the Metasploit Framework modules prevent the exploited process 
from terminating by calling ExitThread() after the shellcode completes. 
This can often allow you to exploit the same process, over and over 
again, and not crash it as long as your shellcode cleans up properly. 
Metasploit implements this by swapping out the function hash in the 
payload at runtime. When EXITFUNC is set to "thread", it uses 
ExitThread(), when it is "process", it uses ExitProcess(), and when it is 
set to "seh", it forces an exception (call 0x0 iirc).
