Subject Opensource and security
Date Wed, 09 Oct 2013 07:32:33 GMT
Hi all,

A little off topic perhaps, for this list, but perhaps also a frequent
question to which it could be nice to have some answers.
An opensource sofware has the advantage, in security terms, to grant that
there are no spyware in it, that's OK. But is there no danger, as the code
is public, to facilitate the creation of virus. It's always a problem for
me to answer to this kind of question, it's unclear for me. So, If somebody
could bring some arguments understandable for end users about this issue,
It would be great.
The same could be applicable to the ODF, what are the advantages, in terms
of security, to work with an open format.

Many thanks

A+
