"Users should take caution for any extensions they download, and to authenticate the source of the extension."
Hmm. Some distributions don't exactly make this easier. Every time I use the default Synaptic package update on my Ubuntu 2005.4 installation, it displays the dire warning "You are about to install software that can't be authenticated" for ALL the out-of-date packages, including those in the core ubuntu and the latest Firefox update. Most of us would be prepared to trust core packages more than multiverse etc, why cry wolf for all of them? TThis will only result in users becoming inured to the warning when it might actually matter.
