Intel Theo de Raadt wrote about the Intel Core 2 Duo chip: "Various developers are busy implementing workarounds for serious bugs in Intel's Core 2 cpu. These processors are buggy as hell, and some of these bugs don't just cause development/debugging problems, but will assuredly be exploitable from userland code." Intel has given a response to the concerns as well.

What about microcode updates?

Odd - I would have thought the Core 2's were fully capable of having microcode updates to patch around these issues and/or fix some of the errors, at least that's what Intel usually does in situations like these.
