Description Dawid Gajownik 2006-07-16 07:42:57 EDT
Description of problem:
Maybe /proc should be mounted by default with noexec,nosuid flags? This can
increase security in some way.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. grep proc /etc/fstab

The initramfs mounts proc. Of course, if this is that important, why not just
set it that way *in the kernel*?
Comment 2 Dave Jones 2006-07-26 00:06:00 EDT
The linux-2.6-defaults-* patches are really starting to pile up.
If you feel strongly about this issue, argue it upstream in
http://bugzilla.kernel.org or linux-kernel@vger.kernel.org
