US-CERT - 64-bit operating system privilege escalation vulnerability on Intel CPU hardware

64-bit operating system privilege escalation vulnerability on Intel CPU hardware

Some 64-bit operating systems and virtualization software running on Intel CPU hardware are vulnerable to a local privilege escalation attack. The vulnerability may be exploited for local privilege escalation or a guest-to-host virtual machine escape.

Linode posted a brief blog about their response to the vulnerability and the steps they took to minimize any issues for their customers - props to them.
