Im trying to stay as safe as possible from a virus/malware infecting host via VM. I have been on forums and a good half of people say your safe on a VM..while the other half says all this stuff to keep u safe and how your not ALL that safe.

1. Never directly run unknown even risky exe in the shared folder. For more, read this post@ MT: https://malwaretips.com/threads/can-malware-bypass-vmware.14677/
2. There ain't no such thing as "100% secure".

Yet, using a VM properly can keep 99% badware at bay.
