So I installed VMware Workstation Player and want to mess around with running old malware from Windows 98 to XP. But I know there are vulnerabilities and exploits where it can find its way to my host, so I want to have as much safety as possible to keep it from spreading to my host computer or any other running on the same network.
So what can I do to keep it spreading to my host?
My host has an antivirus and a firewall, while the guest doesn't.
I can turn off shared folders and keep the network to NAT (Or disconnect it entirely).
No, I don't have any malware on my host, I simply want to have fun and mess around with old viruses.
