I'm just asking if my host machine stays safe when browsing the dark web darknet using Tor on a virtual machine with bridge connection through the host machine ? Since the virtual machine will be using the same RAM with host machine, can a virus inside the VMware RAM affect the host machine? Like send the IP address of the host machine, open a port, open a backdoor etc? Will there be a difference in terms of the security to the host machine if it is either Linux or Windows ?
There have been attacks hosts with non-ECC ram through their virtual machine. The attackers were able to pass commands to the host computer by manipulating the VM memory.
The same security rules that apply to your host, apply to your VM. Use VPNs and the like to help mask your public IP.
