I heard that VPN could mask your IP address, but is this perfectly secure? I am trying to open up what I suspect to be malware on a VM, and I obviously don’t want it to be sending my real IP address across back to the Attacker, this is so I can inspect the signatures of the malware and study what it does. I want to know would a VPN be a secure and reliable way to mask your IP against what you suspect to be malware?

  • A locally run program (like a virus) could determine your actual IP, even if you used a VPN. A VPN hides your address from the target you connect to, not your computer itself.
