    How is that relevant? mmap doesn't require root.

    The answer, which has been discussed to death already, is that you can hide malware in there, but "only" if it's bytecode (or higher) to be run by an interpreter / compiler. "Luckily", you're guaranteed to have at least one of those readily available, and at least three on any desktop system.

    Am I limited to storing a secret password?
    Or can I store a malware there and hide it from the kernel, antivirus software and debuggers?
