> So instead I did this on an Ubuntu desktop.
> I created a Kali Linux VM in VirtualBox that I booted in "live run" mode.
> I didn't share volumes between the VM and the host.
> I installed the rust toolchain on it and built the github repository.

> At the end of the computation, I put the network back on to upload the
> response while monitoring wireshark traffic.
> I didn't notice anything unusual, so once the file was uploaded I turned

> I turned off the PC, unplugged all cables to let it discharge and rebooted.
