Chromium et les téléchargements furtifs sous Debian

To summarize, a popular open-source web browser does a surreptitious download of a program and hides the download and the existence of the program from the user. Even if the binary only does what it is purported to do, it can turn on the microphone and upload what it hears to a remote site to search for a key phrase. That description sounds a lot like one for the latest malware outbreak—or National Security Agency (NSA) eavesdropping program.
