comment What changes my boot partition and how to prevent it?
Thank you for explanation, but this proves my point -- boot is not mounted as you shown, it is mount in other way, and this "other way" triggers the change (probably). So checking regular mounting does not tell anything about actual booting. I just checked again, mount times are updated again (after reboot).

Hmm, so I suppose there is semi-mount during booting or something like that (and that is altering partition), because fstab is not freely available until the boot process is started and the root partition is mounted. Or in other words -- you need to have /boot fully operational, before you even get access to fstab which will tell how the access to boot is defined.

ok, but how \boot is mounted during actual boot? Using fstab -- seems unlikely, because you need to have boot in order to get access to fstab in the first place.

I am sure the boot partition is unmounted (take a look at the script) :-). About dd is think it is actually safer to use it, because I don't specify count for boot, secondly it is quite new Linux, third you get the error using cat in case of "data over-read". Anyway, I dropped bs, still wrong checksum, but the problem lies (IMHO) in the mounting statistics as you pointed out. Despite read-only mounting it still alters info about mounts.

Just rebooted the system with ro -- partition is changed again.

Thank you. I am aware that competent hacker can do many things, however I see no harm in making the life more difficult for such person. As for modifying the kernel -- do you have in mind intercepting the calls for filesystem reading particular area and returning the same data as before? Not impossible but tricky -- you would have to dump entire boot partition, compress it, store it within boot, and then use it on proxied read request. But thanks for the hint about outside system.

comment Why wget cannot download page as root?
Locales are different indeed, but as I wrote, password is 7-bit ASCII. User has "en_US.UTF-8" while root has "POSIX".

comment Why wget cannot download page as root?
Thank you! This is weird, when I add this "ask-password" param I get the output as I quoted now in update section -- 401+OK. When I pass password in command line I get 401 twice, and no OK response. Yes, I quote the password, it is literally same command for user and root. Ha! Solved, I tried backslashing every special character and I removed quotes instead -- it worked for root, finally. I have to idea why quotes were OK for regular user though.

@ÁlexSáez, thank you for the hint, it has to be something else though.
