    Ubuntu 20.10 will likely join other Linux distributions in restricting access to dmesg by unprivileged users...

    Yes please. I don't need unprivileged users looking at device activity.

      I tried this, it was super annoying when you are a pro user / developer.

        In my opinion the idea is the right thing to do, I would appreciate that change.

          "the final security gap currently enjoyed by unprivileged users on multi-user systems"

          I am willing to bet against that. Any takers?

            Kernel logs - the final frontier. These are the voyages of the starship Bloat-buntu.

              Do I get 500:1 odds?

                Over the pear year or so...
                Should that be "Over the last year or so..."?

                    If one defines the word "gap" sufficiently narrowly (i.e. it applies only to dmesg) the quote might be mostly accurate.
