Is Steam Proton a Security Risk?

I know that Easy Linux Tips Project says that any kind of wine based emulation is a risk, Does this also apply to Steam Proton? I know that Steam is not Sandboxed that much (if at all), Does using proton open me up to Made-For-Wine Malware?
Thanks

Re: How do I get a Epson Perfection 3170 Photo working on Mint 18.3/19

Welp, The point is now mute! We just found a Canon CanoScan LiDE 120 at our local Salvation Army and it was new in box for $14.99, It works in Windows great! We have not started to try it in Linux but it is good for now, the Epson did not work in Windows or Linux! UPDATE: It works in Linux great!!! ...

Re: [SOLVED] sudo update-grub is not working correctly for me

Ok, cool :)
That looks like it would do the trick too.
I was just recounting what worked for me, I do not know if it would have the same result for another system.
Thanks for the info :)

Re: [SOLVED] sudo update-grub is not working correctly for me

Yes, Just for clarity this is exactly what I did, I had to add sudo at the top of everything as I was not in a chroot environment, First came: sudo apt-get update Next, I did: sudo apt-get purge grub-common After hitting TAB to select YES on the prompt about removing the bootloader I ran: sudo apt-g...

Re: sudo update-grub is not working correctly for me

Hey, Just a bit of an update, I will have to wait for a few weeks to try these ideas as I currently have an important project that needs my main system, So I can't risk not being able to boot into my main system until that project is done, I will just wait to update my kernel for a bit. Thanks all a...

Re: sudo update-grub is not working correctly for me

Just to confirm before I try any of these fixes, I cannot just do this? From help.ubuntu.com Reinstalling GRUB 2 from a Working System If Ubuntu is operating normally, boot into the working installation and run the following command from a terminal.

Re: sudo update-grub is not working correctly for me

Wow, first off thanks for the fast response! That looks a bit too complex for my skill level, Is that the only way to fix grub? I can boot into my mint 18.3 system, Is there a safer way to fix it from inside mint?

I downloaded the iso from the Virtual Box Website and then I hit "Insert Guest Additions CD Image" and It works, Now I'm running Virtual Box 6, not 5 due to the host freezing bug in 5, I'm not sure what the issue is here?

Re: How do I get a Epson Perfection 3170 Photo working on Mint 18.3/19

After doing all that I still don't see any devices that I can pass through, The only thing I did was add myself to the vboxusers group, all the other stuff was done already, Did I miss something?
