Hi everyone,

I was reading news the other day and found this:
https://www.spinics.net/lists/kernel/msg2540934.html

In the comment section somebody linked this thread:
http://seclists.org/oss-sec/2017/q2/583

Bruce Perens warns about risks for grsecurity customers:
http://perens.com/blog/2017/06/28/warning-grsecurity-potential-contributory-infringement-risk-for-customers/
Earlier RMS said about GPL violation.

Then there was this thing:

Looks like this person and some others that replied were banned by
grsecurity.


Considering the abovementioned, was it a good thing to start using
their patches? Is there a need in a hardened kernel overall?


Cheers
