I downloaded the mailing list archives since 2005 and couldn't find a
solution, now I'm looking in the forums and there's something at least


white:/# mount -t tmpfs -o noexec,nosuid tmpfs /tmp/
white:/# cat /proc/mounts
simfs / simfs rw 0 0
proc /proc proc rw 0 0
sysfs /sys sysfs rw 0 0
devpts /dev/pts devpts rw 0 0
tmpfs /dev/shm tmpfs rw 0 0
tmpfs /tmp tmpfs rw,nosuid,noexec 0 0

It seems to do the trick

Next step would be to permanently add it to the fstab
tmpfs      /tmp      tmpfs      noexec,nosuid      0     0
tmpfs      /var/tmp      tmpfs      noexec,nosuid      0     0

At this moment I can't reboot the veid, tomorrow I'll try and see if data in
fstab remains in the text file after rebooting.
