    Cannot get rid of AppArmor

    I am running 16.04. I have run:

    sudo systemctl stop apparmor
    sudo systemctl disable apparmor
    sudo apt-get remove apparmor
    And also added in /etc/default/grub:
    Rebooted but apparmor still runs! In the /var/log/kern/log:
    AppArmor: AppArmor initialized
    evm: security.apparmor
    AppArmor: AppArmor Filesystem Enabled
    AppArmor: AppArmor sha1 policy hashing enabled

    Cool Re: Cannot get rid of AppArmor

    Why would you want to get rid of AppArmor ? The very security feature that helps protect your file system.
    I have uninstalled it before due to a bug. I used the synaptic package manager. Unless it is malfunctioning I would leave it.
    It is of course part of the default OS.
    AppArmor is a Mandatory Access Control (MAC) system which is a kernel (LSM) enhancement to confine programs to a limited set of resources.
    I try to avoid uninstalling kernel items.
    Here is the documentation for AppArmor :
