Can a scammer take control of my host computer?

I have one question. Can a scammer get control of my host computer via VMWare? I read online that if i turn file sharing off, it would be a slim chance. I’m really curious thought, is it possible?

I’ve had several scammers connect to my virtual machines over the years and not once have they attempted anything of the sort. Just be sure to turn shared folders off like you mentioned and you really shouldn’t have an issue.

@MTS11648#10640 ahh ok. I told the scammer that but he kept insisting. I then called him a worm coz only worms typically break free of vms and he hung up. I then found out i called him before so he recognised me when I said my name is Ben and he decided to look into the places i showed him, one of which was Systeminfo32.
