Intel CPU vulnerability can give attackers control of your system

Does your computer run an Intel processor? If you answered yes, then make sure that you get the following patch that was released in Microsoft bulletin MS12-042 (http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/security/bulletin/MS12-042).
 
The MS12-042 bulletin says the following: "This security update is rated Important for all 32-bit editions of Windows XP and Windows Server 2003; Windows 7 for x64-based Systems; and Windows Server 2008 R2 for x64-based Systems" Check out the full "Affected and Non-Affected Software" table listing on their website.
 
I guess I am just going to install this patch on all my 64bit Intel systems at home...just in case. (And hope that I don't break something)
 
So go get your free patch now and prevent the infection!
