That's the only one M$ has, so I'm assuming it works for all versions, not just X64 as the system requirements might suggest.

• Also coming with SP1 but not in the current release candidate, we will also be including updates that deal with two exploits we have seen, which can affect system stability for our customers.
• The OEM Bios exploit, which involves modifying system files and the BIOS of the motherboard to mimic a type of product activation performed on copies of Windows that are pre-installed by OEMs in the factory.
• The Grace Timer exploit, which attempts to reset the “grace time” limit between installation and activation to something like the year 2099 in some cases.

This is M$ though, so it could just be scaremongering. TBH, I think it will probably end up that on new installs with SP1 integrated it won't work, but those hacks might continue to work on systems which update to SP1 - otherwise why wouldn't M$ already have patched it?
