Linux kernel hardening The kernel is the most frequent target for attackers. Having access to the kernel is the easiest way to escalate users' privileges. Depending on the operating system, Apache runs by default as the limited user nobody (on Red Hat-based distributions such as CentOS) or www-data (on Debian-based distros, including Ubuntu). Every attacker's aim is to break out of the limited user and gain root access by exploiting a vulnerability in the kernel.
