Could someone well-versed in software security explain to me "realistic" results of the following theoretical situation?
- I have a laptop with win 10 infected intentionally by an average programmer to steal user's data.
- I also have an external SSD with Win 10, installed and set-up on a clean/safe environment. This installation also contains bunch of non-malicious softwares...stuff like unity, mpchc, decoders, games & redists...
I plug the clean SSD with OS to the laptop with the infected drive. What happens?
- Is the infected hard drive essentially inactive, like a storage?
- Since the new OS is running by it's own registry, would anything cause the infected software to run?
