Intel released a statement regarding issues with certain CPUs when running in virtualized environments. When encountered, these issues manifest with unexpected page faults

 

This issue could include unpredictable system behavior, such as a virtual machine shutdown due to page faults. Additionally, a stale value may be used by hardware later. If left unmitigated, this vulnerability could allow malicious users to disclose information at the kernel level, or enable user level application privileges for otherwise unauthorized users.
