This is exactly what I'm worried about. Doesn't sound like something I'd like to deal with here if I'm honest.Quote:
The worst that's going to happen is they'll create a mass email spam program, temporarily knock out a server or exploit some privilege escalation bug and gain some confidential information.
Thanks for the feedback eveyone. I'm more so thinking in the same vein as skunk. I'm not willing to allow any possibilities (that I can control) of access to confidential data as obviously would be held highly accountable for this. Also I've gone to the bother and time to secure the network so am not happy to give them the tools to simply undo all this.
I'm in no way saying others are doing it wrong or that their opinion is wrong but just that I'm not willing to go down that route.
I do run a vSphere server environment here so a virtual server with SSH/Text editor to provide these needs is a possibilty however have no knowledge of how to set this up but am willing to give it a go. My other option looks to be VPC2007 and images that don't save changes when shutdown. These wouldn't have a network connection but would provide a way to practice in a raw environment as suggested and can still access My Docs for saving through shared folders.
