Attack code for intel chips :)

Recently i read an article which states 'Kris Kaspersky plans to demonstrate how an attacker can target flaws in Intel's microprocessors to remotely attack a computer using JavaScript or TCP/IP packets, regardless of what operating system the computer is running.' see here

What does this mean ...these processors are buggy as hell..huh .yes it is . Theo de Raadt from open bsd mentioned in his post to openbsd dev group '
These processors are buggy as hell, and some of these bugs don't justcause development/debugging problems, but will *ASSUREDLY* beexploitable from userland code. "

If interested have a look at the Core Duo processor errata here ,
