Default hide processes to ohter user ?

how can I hide my processes to an other user ?
I mean, I don't want that a compromised process can make a ps to see my vim sessions or other running processes. Is it possible ?

How about running your vim sessions in a VM (Virtual Machine)?
You don't need to be a genius to debug a pf.conf firewall ruleset, you just need the guts to run tcpdump

OpenBSD does not have a mechanism to hide process metadata, such as that shown with ps(1) and other monitoring tools.
