You are right to being cautious :)

But you can download through https with


to make sure that it is coming from the people.debian.org domain,
which only Debian Developers like myself can put data on. And Debian
Developers can already upload anything to the Debian archive, see for
instance your /usr/share/doc/libc6/changelog.Debian.gz to see that you
are already using packages that I have uploaded to Debian. I have signed
this mail, for good measure.

Not unless they have a way to actually reach your laptop.

It definitely is! Depending on the laptop brand and manufacture, making
the touchpad work will vary. On my XPS13, it is connected through i2c to
a PCI intel lpss card. On another laptop, exactly the same model of
touchpad could be connected another way, thus requiring another driver.
