  1. The most common vector of attack here is via network, inherently workstation sets up a pretty basic shared network where the guest can route to the host pretty directly… if you disable the drag and drop file sharing and configure your network as pass through instead of shared you should be fine. If you wanna go the extra step for virus/malware research or something, configure the vm to use a dedicated nic connected to an isolated physical network or vlan.
