I am fascinated by the kinds of viruses that are being created every day, and I am looking to see the effects on a computer that these viruses have. So...
I have decided to set up a virtual machine virus-testing environment. I'm looking to test newer viruses, and I wanted to ask if anyone had knowledge on how to prevent host - virtual machine interaction. I will most likely use a bridged network connection to my own computer, and I want to secure any possibility that a virus may infiltrate my host computer or the network on which i'm running, if there is any chance this could happen. I am just wanting to know if there is anything that i can do to secure the safety of my computer before i go ahead and set up this crazy idea?
Thanks in advance.
