First of all i want to thank all the people who are constantly working on Whonix and for making it free and open for everyone to use!
I just started using Whonix and kicked off by copying and applying my tor config in the Gateway machine.
To do that i had to install the Guest Additions first.
Now my Problem is, that i am not able to uninstall them.
When i try to rightclick and press eject in Dolphin file manager i get the following error message:
“The requested operation has failed.: Error starting job: Failed to execute child process “eject” (No such file or directory).”
I know that the Guest Additions are mounted, because i can still change the resolution by draggging the window larger or smaller.
I still have a few general questions regarding the Guest Additions.
I have already read that installing the Guest Additions is considered to be a Security risk.
Is that so because one could enable options like a shared folder or shared clipboard which would make it easier for an attacker to reach the host system?
Is the installation of the Guest Additions still a risk if you have all those options disabled and only use the Additions for higher resolution options they offer?
