Microsoft Says Virtual PC Safe

Security researchers Core Security says Microsoft's Virtual PC really does have a hole. Microsoft says that's absolutely false.

Core says hackers can use the hypervisor layer to make it past an array of Windows security blocks. Microsoft says the hypervisor is fine. The problem is with vulnerabilities that lie beneath that layer within Windows, most of which can be patched.

While there may be a dispute here, it's a healthy one. Anything that makes our computers safer is well worth talking about.
