I got four, count 'em, four, emails from people who thought it was the neatest thang since sliced bread. I was surprised there were no flames, but none of those. (Well, one came close.) As I said, I was never planning to commit it. The illusion of security is more dangerous than knowing the problem is there. The patch makes it a little harder to get code into a running kernel, but does not come close to stopping it. As lame as securelevel(8) is, you are much better off figuring out how to raise it and still retain whatever functionality you need. This is what I've already said on -security, http://docs.freebsd.org/cgi/getmsg.cgi?fetch=297347+0+archive/2001/freebsd-security/20011007.freebsd-security And the original patches, http://docs.freebsd.org/cgi/getmsg.cgi?fetch=172366+0+archive/2001/freebsd-security/20011007.freebsd-security But hey, if people want it, I CAN JUST WRITE THE WARNINGS IN ALL CAPS IN THE NOTES FILE and try not to be disappointed when they still don't read it. -- Crist J.
