  1. How secure is Microsoft Windows "Winget" Package Manager


    I got interested in Microsoft's new package manager for Windows called Winget. I installed it and I really like the wide range of software available. However, I question the security of these repositories Winget is installing apps from. How secure are these repositories and can a generic antivirus scan these installed packages?

    :)
