Re: Hidden service: Is it possible for an attacker to break out of a VM?


If there is no back-door or bug in your VM software, how you wanna break out of the VM?

Even with root privileges you will be a prisoner within the VM.

Proof me wrong.

The title says it all:

Several people recommend running a hidden service from within a VM,
to prevent attackers from doing side channel attacks and reading off your
hardware components and serial numbers.

Then I heard that attackers can actually break out of VM's if they get root
access on it due to a successful attack.

I just want your opinions on that one, thanks!
