USN-3461-1: NVIDIA graphics drivers vulnerabilities

23 October 2017

NVIDIA graphics drivers could be made to crash or run programs as an administrator.




It was discovered that the NVIDIA graphics drivers contained flaws in the
kernel mode layer. A local attacker could use these issues to cause a
denial of service or potentially escalate their privileges on the system.

Update instructions

The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following package versions:

Ubuntu 17.04
Ubuntu 16.04
Ubuntu 14.04

After a standard system update you need to reboot your computer to make
all the necessary changes.
