Modern CPUs from both Intel and AMD contain a hardware execution layer called a hypervisor. The hypervisor is a hardware speedup mechanism what allows modern-day virtualization software to operate at very near stand-alone speeds, as if it were only running one OS at any given time.

The question is asked by Senior Reporter from Forbes Andy Greenberg, who attended the security industry’s big annual confab, the RSA Conference, and wrote up an article aptly titled ‘Virtualization Dark’s Side‘.

For years, many companies have been faced with challenges related to providing backup and recovery for infrastructures, technologies and networks in order to protect their critical business processing capabilities. Much of this effort has been driven by the need to provide a recovery design that was cost-effective and leveraged as much of the information technology […]

Guest “break-out” attacks — where the bad guys break out of a guest virtual machine to attack the hypervisor and gain control of the host — are a looming threat, according to David M. Lynch, vice president of marketing at Embotics. “The only question is, when, not if, a viable attack will occur.”
