Windows 2008 R2 SP1 new feature : ARPSpoofing

Microsoft will realease another feature in Windows 2008 R2 SP1 : Arpspoofing
Those who will be benefit from this new feature will be the Hosts with multi-tenant.
Resuming, if you host multiple virtual machines for different clients in the same host you do want one VM from one client to ping the other client VM? I don’t think so. So today it will happens, but with the SP1 applied and the aspspoofing feature enabled, you can not ping it anymore. So far, so good.
Also, Attackers can use address resolution protocol (ARP) running on your network to make their systems appear to be either your system or another authorized host on your network. An excessive number of ARP requests can be a sign of an ARP spoofing attack (also called ARP poisoning) on your network.
This feature is not in the beta version as was release after the beta become public.
