I have encountered a surveillance program on my network computers. Once infected, the computers have been found to be operating inside a VM, with very limited ability to see the outside machine. There are clues which indicate the existence of the outer Machine.
I have gotten by much of the restrictions of being stuck in a VM. I am looking for the escape route. This is a targeted attack, affecting myself and all of my computers. Additionally, the program goes after anyone who directly assists me. Please do not dismiss this as paranoia, it is not.
