Virtualization technology is being increasingly adopted by organizations across the globe for its numerous benefits such as cost savings, improved efficiency, flexibility, scalability, and disaster recovery. However, the increased adoption of virtualization technology has also led to increased security risks. Virtualization security risks are caused by various factors such as vulnerabilities in virtualization software, attacks on virtual machines (VMs), and hypervisor attacks. This article discusses virtualization security risks and the solutions to mitigate them.

Virtualization Security Risks

Vulnerabilities in Virtualization Software

Virtualization software is the core of virtualization technology. It is responsible for managing the VMs, hypervisor, and other virtualization components. The vulnerabilities in virtualization software can be exploited by attackers to gain unauthorized access to the virtualization environment. Attackers can exploit these vulnerabilities to take control of the virtualization environment, steal sensitive data, and launch attacks on other VMs in the virtual environment.
