I had expected that any dangerous sysctl would not be visible in
an unpriviledge container anyway.
No way what exactly?
Dangerous sysctls are not protected at all.
E.g. A jailed root can use /proc/sysrq-trigger.
Yes, and it's suggested that you do not show it at all,
instead of bloaing ctl_table.
But this requires knowledge which /proc is root and which one is "root".
With current splitup into FOO_NS...
And what about sysfs, there's a lot of writable stuff there too. For
example in /sys/module/*/parameters, /sys/block/*/device/queu ,
/sys/kernel/, /sys/platform/ etc. Perhaps things you don't want to be
read too, such as some uevent files.
Shouldn't that be made inaccessible as well, preferably not visible?
Programs in containers may need sysfs for stuff like
/sys/class/net/<device> , so just not mounting sysfs may not be an option.
