In summary the threat horizon is Intel, virtualization and speculative execution that is not processed for security thereby potentially allowing access to kernel data. In addition this is all OSes as this is a hardware issue. Haven't seen discussion of vmware but would think they are also exposed.|
As for adding more processors, performance doesn't always scale by simply adding hardware. In fact many applications hosted in a virtual environment don't scale with more CPU's and in fact, depending on hypervisor, can run slower with more logical units as scheduling overhead increases.
