We bring in hard drives from un-trusted sources and would like to ensure that they will not contain any harmful content.
What kind of risk is there for Solaris? As in, if Solaris is running, and I attach a drive, I would run
format and then check there is only one
fdisk partition and it covers the whole drive, then I would run
format in order to erase all the data (and test the drive). Is this foolproof? (short of an actual computer inside the hard drive)
I know on Windows there are or have been all kinds of vulnerabilities or auto-run functions. I want to know if I can use Solaris in order to eliminate this problem entirely.
