FreeCAD downloads and executes code without asking.

https://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=526090

From my POV that is totally unacceptable and this package should be hard masked. The author is too dumb to be trusted.

TIA, Gentree. 8)

Would this at least result in sandbox violations?
I hope?
Scary...

Then again if someone MITMs it and the signature isn't checked, sandbox won't help.

Sandbox only covers the building and installation process.

This is run-time !

Well, at least it's running as a regular user then, instead of root...
