Published: 12 April 2016

The Escape interface in the Kernel Mode Driver layer in the NVIDIA GPU graphics driver R340 before 341.95 and R352 before 354.74 on Windows allows local users to obtain sensitive information from kernel memory, cause a denial of service (crash), or possibly gain privileges via unspecified vectors, which trigger uninitialized or out-of-bounds memory access.
