NVIDIA released a security update for its drivers, fixing several issues that could lead to denial of service, escalation of privileges, or information disclosure. The update covers multiple vulnerabilities affecting both the display driver and the Virtual GPU Manager (VGPU).
All software and hardware have the potential to host vulnerabilities. NVIDIA’s GPUs are no exception, although they do not have to fix all that often. Issues with GPUs are not easy to exploit, but when vulnerabilities do present themselves, they need to be patched because they can open the way for attackers.
