Hey there, I’ve been trying to find a secure solution to run some viruses, and because I heard that viruses can sometimes escape virtual machines, I thought about flashing a live OS onto a USB, and running a VM there. Would that be more secure? Would this VM on a USB-OS be reasonably far away/detached from the personal data on my PC?
That will depend on the virus itself, there’s no an straight answer for that, in general you can run it safely in a virtual machine but as mentioned it will depend on the virus and what it does. Things like reverse shells or even ransomeware can be run in a virtual machine safely.
