FreeRTOS-MPU security (privileges)

Posted by Stefano Cristalli on August 16, 2013
Hello, I'm currently testing FreeRTOS-MPU on STM32F4. It has occured to me that restricted tasks could call xTaskCreate or xTaskCreateRestricted in order to spawn other tasks, perhaps with malicious code. Is that a behaviour that should be blocked? How would someone prevent such task from calling said functions?

Thanks in advance.
