Does Ubuntu have malicious NSA code? Does the NSA have special backdoors to Ubuntu or even the Linux Kernel? After I found out that the NSA has had special backdoors to the Windows OS, I've been worried that Ubuntu might also have these same backdoors for the NSA. I understand that SELinux is a contribution from the NSA which some have claimed to be legitimate. Even if the NSA does not have direct access to Ubuntu, does Ubuntu save and send my data to there servers?
