Most are doing malware testing on a VM in the Hub and never got infected as far as I know. Don't worry about that.
Is Shadow Defender and vpn on good enough for testing? I uninstall mine a long time ago so I might need to install it again.

You can install it.


They can but isn't the case for normal malware.
You can also disable network access.

The most likely chance it will escape is via your network.
what if i install shadow defender and use it along with vpn? Is this good?

is it good if i use shadow defender inside virtualbox or just redundant to use shadow defender inside virtualbox?
Redundant. Shadow Defender restores the system to the state on which you activated the Shadow Mode. That's why I wouldn't recommend it to test on your main system, as malware can still steal your passwords and other sensitive stuff. Either use an old laptop or desktop pc, whipe your drives and install a VPN and Shadow Defender, or use a VM with the settings in the video. The only important thing is that you should use only one side of file sharing between your host system and VM. You should enable drag n' drop from your host to your VM but never the other way around, as malware can escape that way and infect your host system theoretically. Otherwise the settings mentioned in the video are good enough.

Edit: If you decide to use a Virtual Machine you still need a VPN either on your host system or the testing system. (Host system is recommended)
