About:
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 via its Role-Based Access
Control 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 RBAC system has an intelligent
learning mode that can generate least privilege policies for the entire
system with no configuration. All of grsecurity supports a feature that
logs the IP of the attacker that causes an alert or audit.  

Changes:
Changes include RBAC system bugfixes and two new PaX features, one which
deters physical memory forensics by an attacker, and another that prevents
an entire class of kernel vulnerabilities from being exploited. Updated to
the 2.4.33 and 2.6.17.8 Linux kernels. 

Release focus: Minor bugfixes
