Topic: security patches break Grsecurity settings
Today I updated some security patches, (deselecting the kernel update as advised by Yuriy), it was down loaded anyhow & broke the security settings. I verified this running paxtest blackhat.
1. Can the settings be reapplied? If possible how?
It seems to me that a major failure of Grsecurity is that every time a kernel patch is applied the settings are broken. The only alternative to patching the kernel is not to & leave a potential vulnerability open to exploit. As I'm new to the subject of unix security I'd appreciate the views of others in this area.
