Ubuntu Linux Live CD security?
I am new to Linux, and have used the Ubuntu Live cd to get a quick sneek peek.
I was curious, as to how secure I am using the live cd.
Does anyone know if its even possible for my puter to be comprimised when I am running the Linux OS from CD?
I would imagine not, since I dont think its even possible to contract a virus or spyware,trojan, keylogger, any of that sort without the OS being on HD, Is that right?
I am just wondering if I am being Naive, thinking that I am totally secure accessing my $$$ type accounts online, by the use of the Live CD?
thanks for any input.

Nothing is 100% safe with computers, but that will eliminate most of the risk.
