Anyone noticed the SUDO UPDATE is pulling Microsoft files

Wed Feb 03, 2021 4:23 pm

If you do the normal update now in terminal I'm seeing it goto a Microsoft depository, anyone else noticed that?

What could it be using from Microsoft?

There are already 2 locked threads about this. How long until this is the 3rd one?

It is a repository, but it does not pull in any software unless you use VSCode.

You may remove the "vscode.list" file from "/etc/apt/sources.list.d" if it bothers you.

True. I have also blocked it on my DNS in case it gets put back and anything tries to install code from there.
