  • Via CRAN you possibly get malicious R code. Does R server have security measures in place like AppArmor?

  • These are our current R execution security considerations:

    In the future we are thinking about using more isolation using containers. Stay tuned!

  • Hi there,

    For the packages that are shipped with Microsoft R Server (link), they have been validated through Microsoft anti malware service. There is currently no R package like AppArmor like in Microsoft R Server package.

    Thanks,
