Not sure you would have to look up packages of that set up and dependencies I suspect.But what about the duplication? Why did I have two sudo with slightly different descriptions?
Nothing I believe gets put in the repos without being approved. This is with being able to look at all the code, since this is open source, hard to say how much is looked at though I would not know really. Actually the user a IT pro, that runs the IRC freenode channel ##windows in a conversation with me said he thought that the ubuntu repos and the gpt key setup with open source were extremely safe, and wished others would follow this lead.So what would happen if the Ubuntu repositories were cracked and a trojan added for download?
Certainly possible, but to endanger linux it has to be in a code that runs in it and have root access, I suppose this just part of being safe. The definition of a trojan though is sort of broad, none of this though is an area of expertise for me really. A popup like is seen your infected click here, would nut run in linux unless written for it, and none is known to be on the web.As I understand it, a trojan is malicious code that the user puts on his/her computer knowing that it's software, thinking that it's wanted/needed, but not knowing that it's harmful.
I suspect they are oracle has a lot of money, and wants to keep its market hold, letting security be a problem would be a bad business move.Third party repos are a concern. But I'm hoping Oracle and Scribus are at least the same order of magnitude as safe as Ubuntu...
