busybox contains vulnerabilities
busybox cannot be removed, since it is a dependency for pve-kernel
how to get rid of it ?

Busybox is part of the initramfs, so it cannot be removed and I don't think I've ever seen a linux-based system where it can be removed completely.

you're right, initramfs needs it and I don't think klibc could achieve exact same goal as busybox
