Have any of you guys read this : http://www.fsf.org/blogs/rms/ubuntu-spyware-what-to-do ? It is an article by Richard Stallman about spyware in ubuntu. Does this affect just ubuntu 12.10? I use kubuntu 10.04 and ubuntu 12.04. Are these affected too? I was wondering if this problem will be there even if we enable the ufw firewall. If yes, does this mean that there is a hole in the firewall? Wouldn't that be a big security risk?
