The changes in this release are as follows:
This release includes ports of PaX (non-executable pages and
stack/mmap randomization) to alpha, sparc, sparc64, and parisc.
Process accounting and log suppression have also been implemented in
the ACL system. A fix for the recent ptrace vulnerability has been
included in the patch. gradm has been updated for this release.
grsecurity is a complete security system for Linux 2.4 that implements
a detection/prevention/containment strategy. It prevents most forms
of address space modification, confines programs with least privilege
via its process-based MAC system, hardens syscalls, provides
full-featured auditing, and implements many of the OpenBSD randomness
features. It was written for performance, ease-of-use, and security.
The MAC system has an intelligent learning-mode, and all of
grsecurity supports a feature that logs the IP of the attacker that
causes an alert or audit.
