Is this news so scary ?

Hi all,
I found this article about the possible exploitation of the SMM (System Management Mode) of Intel CPU :
http://www.networkworld.com/community/node/39825?t51hb
(an introduction to the SMM could be found here: http://www.rcollins.org/ddj/Jan97/Jan97.html).

Do anyone think that soon we'll see malwares using this techniques ? If so, how can we be protected ?

Cheers.
