Safely test wannacrypt ransomware

Postby yoto » Fri May 19, 2017 6:33 pm

Hi, I'm interested in the WannaCrypt ransomware, and want to try it in a VM and test the spreading technique, but don't want to infect myself or any other computers on the network (2 Windows 7 computers)

I have 2 Windows XP VM's setup in VMware with bridged networking. Is there anything that I can do to make sure all the computers are safe?

Thanks a lot :)

you can disable the network adapter from VMware and that's all!
