Are all gallery extensions secure?


  • Hi,

    I would like to know about the security of third-party extensions in Visual Studio Gallery:

    1. Are all they ad-ware free?
    2. Are they all spy-ware free? Is it possible that some of them upload user disk content surreptitiously into a remote server?
    3. Do they all comply with some securtiy policy?

    One one side, they are all put on Microsoft domain and are linked under Visual Studio Gallery; on the other side, they are developed by third-parties. Therefore, does Microsoft endorse the security of these extensions or not? Can I be assured that they will not violate my privacy?
