MS Virtual Server vulnerablity

Anyone else see MS07-049?

Appears that a user with admin privs on the guest could execute code on the host or on other guests. Not good.

It's not a bug, it's a "feature." People keep asking how the guest can know more about the host or have the guest do more. I guess you could with VPC/VS. Smiley Wink
