|Description||Test suite for the PaX kernel patch is being used by applications. A normal Linux kernel leaves the control to the application and does not implement any enforcement. Especially buffer overflow attacks benefit from the absence of kernel enforced memory control. PaX tries to do its best to enforce this control of memory used by applications, thereby making it harder to successfully exploit buffer overflows.|
