Chmod 0777 Polymorphic Shellcode

This is my first hand written shellcode for linux which I wrote it for fun and exploration. I am a bit new to shellcoding in *nix environments. This shellcode changes the permission of the shadow file in linux/x86 system to 0777. According to the Linux programmer’s manual of chmod it takes two arguments.
[code language=”c”]
#include <sys/stat.h>

int chmod(const char *path, mode_t mode);
