I was wondering, is there any way to stop untrusted local users from running something like:
to bring down the whole system? (eg. some sort of memory quota?)
I tried it on my Debian box with a Core 2 Duo E6300 and 1GB ram from an unprivileged user, and it completely crashed my system within seconds if not shorter.
Is there something conceptual that I am missing here? (eg. should untrusted users not be allowed to run any binary? That doesn't seem practical in eg, a school setting)
Thank you very much
