- I have a Linux Centos 6 server in the garage without a monitor or keyboard, and it does not hold any sensitive information.
- My wife has a Windows 7 laptop which she surfs the Internet, checks emails, uses MS Word, and pays bills online.
- My 10 year old Daughter wants to play Minecraft on the laptop, spent the past 2 weeks earning money to buy the base program, and now needs to download various executable programs.
I am a little nervous about my wife surfing the Internet on the same Machine that she pays bills, but I am very nervous about my Daughter running executables, so I told her last night she couldn't play Minecraft on the laptop, and she burst off in tears.
Without buying a new PC, what options do I have to be reasonably safe? I am thinking of creating a virtual box on the Linux server, install Windows and Minecraft on it, and somehow letting access that platform via the laptop and play her game. Is this possible, will it contain most viruses, and if so how? Thank you
