Linux Kernel Runtime Guard (LKRG) Install Script

Linux Kernel Runtime Guard (LKRG) is developed by Openwall team. LKRG can prevent and/or detect the Linux kernelspace exploit. However, the userspace exploit cannot be detected or prevented, such as DirtyC0W exploit even it uses the kernel for the exploit.

Be keep in mind that LKRG may be/can be bypassed like other programs.

These scripts can install/uninstall LKRG on Ubuntu Linux (or debain based) with ease. It uses DKMS that it will be recompiled automatically when new Linux kernel is installed.
