My operating system is Windows XP. I have installed VMWare Player 3.1.4 with the Ubuntu 10.04 LTS desktop VMware image in order to play with a Linux system.
Here is the question: If I didn't update the Ubuntu system to fix all security issues, will I have potential problems with people being able to access my Windows files?
// update //
The major reason that I don't want to update the Ubuntu system is that it causes my system to be extremely slow.
