WARNING if you use VirtualBox for analysis



  • Hey all,

    Just wanted to let you know that in the newer version of Oracle VirtualBox 5.2.8r121009, Oracle moved the position of the Delete snapshot button. As an analyst, I often restore snapshots and typically I do it by right clicking on the snapshot in my list of snapshots and clicking the first option which used to be “Restore Snapshot.” They’ve not put the Delete Snapshot option in that spot so if you are just flying through it fast or have muscle memory, you may accidentally delete your snapshot! Luckily I didn’t, but that is a very poor design choice!!

    On a side note, check this talk out:

    Enjoy. Happy hunting.
