Hello!

At the risk of being wrong, I haven't heard of too many Linux exploits. However, as Linux becomes more popular, I'm sure they'll be coming - especially as more and more people abandon the soon-to-be-subscription-based Windows.

As for myself, I don't see myself paying $120 a year just to have my computer infected by every Tom, Dick, and Harry (not to mention the johns, heheheheheheh). Besides, the 'local KMS' workarounds aren't exactly going to go away, as corporate users will still need KMS to validate their copies of Windows.

With the current system of checks and balances built in, you'd just about have to create your own .deb to infect others. A malicious PPA just wouldn't last long enough to infect a significant number of people...
