Have a VirtualBox set up with Vagrant and Ubuntu 12.04.1 LTS. Simply, can I be hacked? Do I have security concerns of my virtual server being detected?

My normal OS is Windows 7, if that matters.

It's difficult to tell what is being asked here. This question is ambiguous, vague, incomplete, overly broad, or rhetorical and cannot be reasonably answered in its current form. For help clarifying this question so that it can be reopened, visit the help center.If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

For lofty, general questions like this, One can only reply with lofty, general answers. My answer for a question like this is simply:


Technically-imperfect people made the components mentioned, and technically-less-imperfect people can hack them, given the proper motivations.

That said the likelyhood is small, and someone having motivation to hack YOU is likely even smaller.
