At my school, our teaching staff wants to move from Atom to Visual Studio Code on our lab computers (running MacOS).
Our SysAdmin is telling me that we aren’t allowed to install VSCode because of security policies. Their concern is that VSCode allows remote code execution (through extensions).
I cannot find much information online in respect to security concerns with VSCode. How are other schools doing it? Are there ways to mitigate those security issues? Or are those security concerns mistaken?
If you use VSCode at your school, I would love to hear your thoughts on this.
