    Well this is sure to make a nice contrast to SELinux.

    I will have to check this out though, I have spent far too long playing with consoles and electronics and I need to get back into this PC thing.

    [​IMG] I found it quite funny for making something just to be cracked/hacked/exploited/... whatever the right term is.
    Does sound like a great learning tool actually.

    This would be a great learning tool... I'll mention it to my instructors at the college I go to.

    I couldn't believe it though, my one professor, when asked what he did on the weekend, casually replied that he hacked the Linux kernel (the latest one... for Ubuntu I think) via something to do with an exploit when division is performed. I think. I kind of don't remember because I was only awake due to the 2 Red Bulls I had drank earlier (it was midterm exam season). Still, for someone to casually hack the Linux kernel in his spare time is pretty cool.
