[PATCH] sysctl: add config to make randomize_va_space RO

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


Add config RO_RANDMAP_SYSCTL to set the mode of the randomize_va_space
sysctl to 0444 to disallow all runtime changes. This will prevent
accidental changing of this value by a root service.

The config is disabled by default to avoid surprises.
