Re: VM for fun and profit?
"Redpill" comes from the Matrix universe. In the Matrix, most humans are lulled into believing the world they're in is real, but it's not. People who were scouted and took a "red pill" eventually were disconnected from the Matrix and exposed to the real world. Someone a few years ago proposed a malware which would transparently wrap the existing OS into a virtual machine which was then controlled by a hypervisor in the malware. Thus the reverse was also conceived: a malware that could detect the presence of a VM and, knowing this, found a way to break out into the hypervisor. Such a malware that could do that can be termed a "redpill," similar to the Matrix scenario.
