Hacked Wordpress site on Local


I am curious if LOCAL acts as a sandbox?

If I cloned a WordPress site that was infected with Malware to LOCAL, will it have a chance to infect my MAC?

Hi there,

Good question! The only thing exposed from your Mac to the site container is the folders in the site folder (app, logs, conf). Everything else is isolated.
