How safe is it to join a testnet?

Could an evil maid attack be possible by simply joining a testnet?

As evil maid, I mean regarding this https://theintercept.com/2015/04/27/encrypting-laptop-like-mean/

Certainly not and “evil maid” attack :slight_smile: The testnets have no safecoin or similar in them. There is only data. There are websites etc. and it could be possible to download a binary form that which is untrusted and malicious. We have net seen that and really it would be similar to clearnet in that respect. So no issues reported as of yet. The network cannot decrypt any data only clients can.

Hope that helps.
