Loading modules to Linux kernel without modules support?

Ever heard something like "I do not compile module support because hackers could use it to do bad things."? Me too. It was not true for a long time. It is possible to load Linux kernel modules to the running kernel via /dev/kmem - there was a study about it in Phrack 58. But now, it is even simpler - the project jammod can load modules via simple
jammod -m /boot/System.map module.ko
This is wonderful piece of code to study. I recommend reading it if you are interested in Linux kernel. -----
