Title: Malware VS Router under VirtualBox
Post by: Spartacus1 on October 27, 2011, 11:43:32 pm
Hello to all who read!
I am wanting to test out some malware on my winxp vm.  I am using OpenSUSE 11.4 as my host and VirtualBox as my emulator, but I have some other machines running Win XP and Vista on the same router.
How likely is it that my router will get infected and spread to my other machines?
Thanks!

It's not the router you've got to worry about - it's the other machines (especially if they've got file sharing enabled).

When doing this, always ensure the machine is isolated (i.e. on a different subnet for a start).
