I'm currently running Windows 10, and I plan to use a Linux distro to run in a VM (Virtual Box). I know Linux is one of the most secure operating systems there is and I'm curious as to how likely it is a virus could spread from the Linux distro onto my Windows. I've seen posts similar to this where answers usually mention a virus could still spread over a network, but I never saw Linux specifically mentioned. Does this still apply no matter the OS?
Edit: I am fully aware Linux still has holes and is still a target for malware. I only said one of the most secure because it's more secure than more widely-used operating systems like Windows.
