IS IT SAFE TO CREATE VMS FROM PUBLIC ~OKEANOS IMAGES?
A public ~okeanos Image is an OS image uploaded by an ~okeanos user and as such, it can be faulty in a number of ways: it may not boot, it may not have essential packages (e.g. SSH server) etc. Moreover, we cannot guarantee that the image has no malicious software (spyware, viruses) installed on it.
You are advised to be extremely cautious about your privacy when using a VM that has been created by a public ~okeanos Image.
