I see virtual machines like I see computer emulators. If a virus infects the emulator it does not infect the whole system. If for example I was using an Amiga emulator to access the internet and a firewall blocks all application from accessing the internet, would it be possible for the a virus to break through the Amiga emulated environment to the host operating system � assuming of course that the virus is designed specifically to do this.

Wouldn�t it be as daft as computer virus breaking through the confines of the computer hardware itself?
