I'm new to Linux and I'm strugeling to make an assignment. Because the lack of knowledge at this time, I would like someone to give me a help with my first assignment.
Here is the problem:
Design and implement a patch for mount(8) and the kernel with the goal of making sure that an arbitrary user cannot cause a denial of service by inserting a maliciously formatted filesystem on CDROM or floppy or USB stick.
If anyone is willing to help, it will be very appreciated. Any hint will do.
Thanx in advance,
