Pelládi: Afaik a "full" virtual machine protects you from this bug,
since it only emulates a network card and does not grant direct access
to the hardware. I've seen that VirtualBox can emulate a e1000 gigabit
adapter, maybe you can try to currupt your virtual NVRAM if you want to.
Something else might happen with para-virtualized machines (like OpenVZ,
Xen, para_virt ops etc.) where all virtual instances share one physical
instance, that is your real e1000 card in this case.
