Default Intel CPUs affected by VM privilege escalation exploit

From http://h-online.com/-1616866

A security vulnerability in the virtualisation software built into Intel's hardware allows an attacker to execute code in Ring 0 of the CPU. The problem affects 64-bit versions of Windows, Linux, FreeBSD and the Xen hypervisor.
