Re: [opensuse-security] Apparmor suggestion to include more profiles

Plain destruction is not a real problem.
It is easily noticed and simply fixed (use your backup).

The problem is when it reads all your ~/Documents/*
and sends them to someone else in the Internet so that
later you can get tricked by social engineering
that is very specifically made for you.
