Had a conversation about this at lunch today where I informed
someone that the joke about "Security by the obscurity of running
in a VM" days are likely either already over or about to be over.

Anyone have any stats or even an educated guess about whether or
not bad guys still care if they are in a virtualized env before
they take a box?
