I have some allegedly malicious USB drives that I want to test. I have an already installed Ubuntu OS with a guest session and the Ubuntu Live CD. Which environment setup is safer for testing the malicious drive?
- All storage devices will be removed in the Live CD case. In the Ubuntu Guest Session case, there can be other internal drives but not external (internal drives need mounting to be accessed, external drives don't. So the first are not accessible due to root restrictions but the second are).
- Network connection is turned off.
NOTE: When I mean safe I do not mean 100% (because that's impossible). A near 100% suffices :-P .
