I was searching online about hardening of VM's to prevent host infection if guest is infected. For example, shared clipboard is enabled by default, so the Guest OS can see the clipboard content if you copy something on your Host OS. I've found some interesting posts/links in this topic about VM hardening: http://communities.vmware.com/message/1164467 However, most of them involve changing the advanced settings and the .vmx file, but I can't find Advanced settings anywhere, and the contents of my .vmx file are quite short. All those strings/keys mentioned are not in my .vmx file at all. Does somebody know more about this? Perhaps it's because I'm using the free VMware Player and it's limited?
