In this forum many user talk about virtualbox,vmware, to isolate the server from the system.And Protecting Hidden services .onion private key from your host its better to store outside from that isolated place what the server is running.But i think it's not enough.Programs like Xampp,Wamp in windows try to install in system drive C:/.With this is the problem if this happend the attacker will acces the system in virtualbox.And they can install more viruses,and backdoor.I think its a way 1. to put the server in a encrypted file (like a VeraCrypt volume,2.Copy this file in the virtual mashine,+ encrypt the virtual mashine too with full disk encryption but with another keys what use the host mashnine.3.Mount this file and run the serven in a non system patrition drive.4 disable USB ports,block drivers,CD,DVD,ports,in virtual mashine block.Turn on network discovery to protect the system to acces back and forth to acces the encrypted virtual system or non system patrition drives.
How can i give more extra protection to protect the system in virtual mashine if the server are cracked like C99 shell,to block the attacker to acces in the operating system in the virtual mashine?
