    Wrong, worst case scenario is that the service you were running which handled users inputing their social security numbers and credit cards is now compromised.

    example 2: worst case scenario you reboot and all is well again.

    Of course, you can't patch your liveCD to stop the problem from occuring in the first place.
    You can certainly patch the applications/services/daemons you are running on a LiveCD.

    Talking about LiveCDs, i remember a windoze bootcd i heard about here, it's called 911 CD, here is it's website http://www.911cd.net.

    Abstract

    The 911 Rescue CD is the Admin's Swiss Army knife it is an integrated set of software designed for the emergency situations when the system doesn't function properly or when assembling a new PC and no pre-installed operating systems or software is found.

    The 911 Boot Disks are a set of startup disks based on the ModBoot framework, they have mouse-driven user interface and greatly simplify the process of setting up and recovering failed systems, and allow the user to diagnose problems and assist in the fixing steps.
    i heard about it from a friend, however since it's windoze, i dont use it
