    I wonder how a tight/closed VM holds up against this? I ask because the only time I am online is via a linux nested VM with my hopes that holes are closed enough to keep the debian host solid! Many of these products are programmed to shut down when they realize they are in a virtual machine.

    Have not read everything yet, but this sounds quite scary, everyone should be aware of these tricks.

    I did in fact, but if I missed a part about VM's so be it. The professionalism or "talent" appears much better than what you think of as a normal attacker. Even company users can add security with VM's, so I guess I am going to "cop" about not getting your comment about my post.
