      Looks like there is a working VM Escape now. This is probably one of the scariest exploits I have seen in a while. As good a reason as any to [finally] start segragating VMs.

      Quite Impressive. This is the first time I’ve seen an exploit like that. Thanks for the video & story.

      That’s scary…I use VMware all the time. Maybe I shouldn’t.

      QEMU had one a few years ago and I don’t think I would trust HyperV. I’m sticking with VMWare until someone catches up. Their patching is pretty prompt.
