Subject[PATCH 0/2] restrict statistics information to user
Date
taskstats and /proc/PID/io may be used for gathering private
information. E.g. for openssh and vsftpd daemons wchars/rchars may be
used to learn the precise password length (pass_len = w_chars - CONST).
Restrict it to user.

The simplified proof learning whether ~*/.ssh/authorized_keys file
exists is posted here:

Vasiliy Kulikov (2):
proc: restrict access to /proc/PID/io
taskstats: restrict access to user
