I'm running a VM which connects to a wireless network completely separate from my office LAN. (i.e., I've disabled the wired NIC on the VM and the connection is not bridged... I use a USB WiFi adapter which provides the VM with an internet connection. The question of security came up today - if my VM were to become infected, could it also infect my host? (From what I've read this is a rather debatable question, so I'm excited about what discussions may arise.)
