    Make sure you're not using an optical mouse. The FBI spies on you through those. Cause they're just a camera.

    Um linux is open source, thousands of people look and work on the code. If there was a huge security flaw like you say it would make headlines. I say you're just posting BS.
    That being said... Don't feed the troll..
