VM Appliances

I maintain a collection of VM appliances with various OSes installed.  There are many reasons to deploy a VM appliance including;

  • To analyse malware payloads / infected URLs
  • To sandbox untrusted / unaudited software
  • To recreate OS specific conditions during troubleshooting.
  • To run Windows environments on top of a Linux host and vise versa.

By downloading a VM you agree to identify and adhere to relevant legislation applicable to you, including regulation specially originating from;

  • The United Kingdom (my site is physically hosted in London)
  • The US state of New York (my hosting provider’s legal headquarters)

You should not use these VMs to commit criminal or unlawful activity, including using them to avoid or otherwise circumvent restrictions coded into proprietary / non-free software.

All VM appliances are provided with ABSOLUTELY NO WARRANTY WHATSOEVER.
