Ubuntu Snafu: Privacy Is Hard, Let’s Go Shopping

November 10, 2012 Added by:Fergal Glynn

Amusingly, the plugin’s flood of attention means it is already racking up quite the bug count. For example, it does not currently do any NSFW prevention, and the results are returned in plaintext also. Have fun explaining that one to the ol’ boss-a-roni...

October 29, 2012 Added by:Rainer Enders
