    Perfect security from threats that normally deliver via internet!
    (And it is even one of these that benefit from being modular!)

    #include <linux/kmod.h>
    #include <linux/module.h>
    #include <linux/netdevice.h>
    #include <net/net_namespace.h>

    static void cl(const char *name, const char *state)
    const char *args[] = {"ip", "link", "set", name, state, NULL};
    call_usermodehelper("/sbin/ip", (char **)args, NULL, UMH_NO_WAIT);

    int __init automagic_security_init(void)
    const struct net_device *dev;

    for_each_netdev(&init_net, dev)
    cl(dev->name, "down");

    return 0;

    void __exit automagic_security_exit(void)
    const struct net_device *dev;

    for_each_netdev(&init_net, dev)
    cl(dev->name, "up");
