Linux Mint hacked: Malware-infected ISOs linked from official site

The little voice inside my head

Would you like an OS that recognizes appropriate behaviour, meaning it uses a baseline, keeping track of what is considered "normal" in everyday experiences and then start "nagging" you with notifications if there are unexpected traffic or services or processes running in the background? I wonder how smart an OS could become nowadays... Not just an antivirus or process scanning that depends on a database to catch malware or viruses, but like a natural heuristic approach... Which comes to mind, several antivirus make use of, but don't know if there is any baselining going on.
