This evening I went to a very interesting presentation on Linux LiveCDs.
   The presentation theme was security focus.  One of the facts that the
presenter made was that the LiveCDs have hostile code on them that could
access the data on the hard disk.  For use at the customer site, for
vulnerability assessment and penetration testing, which LiveCD is secure
and can be trusted for use at customer sites?

Thank you in advance for any information.

Wish you all happy holidays.

And a LiveCD is.......

I'm assuming you mean, a bootable CD containing Linux???

In which case - its at your judgement.....
I believe Red Hat Linux (now Fedora) to be secure - that does not mean it

I believe my Windows XP cd to be valid - it may not be, it may have been
tampered with....
