First let me say sorry if I sound like a script kitty, because I am. Now on to my question.
So I want to be protected on the internet when I go on the deep web, do banking etc. I use Tails to protect myself since it is a very secure OS.
I use SSL over OpenVpn to connect, and I run that on my VM and that seems to do the job. Currently my host OS is Windows 7 Pro Service Pack 1. Is it a vulnerability to use Windows as my host OS vs Tails (yes I do know that I could get a virus on windows and they could spy on my VM.)
I guess another way to phrase it is could someone hack me, who only sees my VM, and still get to my windows machine?
Also would it be better to use another flavor of Linux, such as Kali? I have it as a vm and it works well, but as stated previously I am a script kitty atm so I am not good at penetration testing.
