I currently use a Fusion Windows 10 VM on my MacBook Pro to run some ransomware for my YouTube channel, normally what I'll do is I'll download the sample I need from inside the VM and then disconnect the network adapter and then run the malware, my question is, what network type should I use, in Fusion the network options are: Internet Sharing: Share with my Mac, Bridged Networking, Custom: Private to my Mac. Also what network type should I use for if I want network access while running the malware?
