Definition[edit | edit source]

In a guest-hopping attack, an attacker will try to identify two virtual machines likely to be hosted on the same physical hardware. Assuming the attacker is interested in data from virtual machine A, but is unable to directly penetrate virtual machine A, the attacker will try to penetrate virtual machine B, and then try to gain access to virtual machine A.
