i was watching some video on virtualbox live gentoo with gentoo as host, and while i was watching the video, i saw this pop up within the video screen with some folders and it looked like a folder got dragged into another folder, but it happened so fast i could barely see it.

anyway, lets say this virtualbox gentoo live which i deleted was infected with some kind of malware, is my host gentoo in danger, and do i need to reinstall gentoo?

Are you absolutely sure it wasn't on the video or on the ad(gif) that was placed over the video?
Seeing "folders being dragged" sure sounds like a gif or a video.

Did you remember if the filamanger where the folders move looked like a filemanager you have installed?

And as for escaping to host machine from virtual machine... highly unlikely, unless you have intentionally set filesahing, remote shell, etc. between host and virtual.

Do you share folders between host and guest?

i most likely did not turn on sharing between guest and host that i am aware of, does that mean i am fine?
it was weird because i saw it within the video window when the video was playing on 50% length.

I think you still haven't established whether you saw a video recording of someone else's desktop copying a file, or if the file was copied on your virtualbox guest.
