I have being using Linux as sever for some time but just switched my desktop several days back. Most confusing part about desktop experience are apps and packaging.
I was forced to download some apps like postman, Mattermost etc from Software store since they do not include installer packages on their websites. but seems that software store has multiple copies of same app which makes me think that it is community managed space.
With all being said is there a chance that somebody could sniff custom code inside those packages and i could get infected by downloading apps from Software Store?
Is it that hard package tar files downloaded from official sources ?
