Reading through the docs I couldn’t really find anything about it which made me mildly worried.

At the same time a program with a mission such as hostd is bound to raise eyebrows for antiviruses.

At the same time both companies are big, and often spoken about as best in their field, one would think it would be already sorted unless some shady code has been injected.


I don’t know, but I’m not really keen on taking risk so I am blocking it until I get some clarification.
