    With Windows 10 coming to Xbox I was wondering if any of you were concerned about viruses and various other shady things that can be found out there on the old interwebs since basically a virus can be made to target a given exploit in Windows 10 and basically affect our computers, Xbox's, and for those that have them their phones/tablets. Just curious about what your thoughts might be. Will we see some sort of antivirus software out there for the Xbox since the back end is essentially the same as millions of other computers out there?

    Not concerned since Xbox One will not be running the Desktop version of Windows 10 and will have zero legacy support for Win32. Everything is sandboxed, just like on Windows 10 Mobile. I'm sure there are some security exploits somewhere, but not concerned about viruses since everything either comes from the Store or off a physical disc.

    It's a Windows 10 core, not a full on Desktop version of Windows 10.

    More importantly, this isn't like a PC, where you can just say "download this," from a random site. Instead, Microsoft reviews and approves what goes to its store. You'll be fine.
