And the common sense one is basically don't download and install stuff
from a 3rd party that you don't know and/or trust.  Myself I am weary
of 3rd party repositories even when they have a gpg signature.

One thing I have noticed is that when a distro like Ubuntu is/still
gaining in popularity there has/is more 3rd party repositories popping
up too.

Best advice I can give is that if you start to question yourself/bad
feeling on installing something from a 3rd party site/repository it
best just not to do it.
