I should also have ...

However, for most purposes it's good enough. With chroot, cgroups, etc, and the ability to run containers under an unprivileged account (so root in the container is still limited on ...

Strictly speaking, both are insecure compared to USB boot etc. However, every layer of security drops the probability of generic attacks succeeding. Using a VM with incoming network connections disabled should be immune to the vast majority of malware on the host. You could disconnect the USB keyboard from the host and attach it exclusively to the VM to ...
