Re: This is very disturbing - I think? - where to post?

Please be assured if you are using MX linux. MX is the system you can trust. If the post is right it may be due to some additional ppa the user may installed there in ubuntu and as of here in mx you are not to worry about it as mx is not supporting Ubuntu ppas and we at MX always say that to new us...
