Submission + - EFF: Ubuntu v12.10 A Major Privacy Problem (

An anonymous reader writes: Ubuntu version 10.12 was released and it includes a whole range of new features and updates. However, EFF demands that Ubuntu should disable "online search results" by default. Users should be able to install Ubuntu and immediately start using it without having to worry about leaking search queries or sending potentially private information to third party companies such as Amazon, BBC, Facebook, and Twitter. Let us make sure that you respect your users' privacy and security.
