When is a core dump _not_ a security issue?
I mean, if it is possible to dump the kernel at all, surely it is at least theoretically possible to mount the file system with a different OS and pull the dump file apart - thereby possibly disclosing the memory of every process running at the time the core dump was executed.
Have I got the wrong end of the stick here?
BTW I do know that core dumps are near essential in a development environment!
