USN-5276-1: NVIDIA graphics drivers vulnerabilities

8 February 2022

Several security issues were fixed in NVIDIA graphics drivers.




It was discovered that the NVIDIA graphics drivers incorrectly handled
permissions in the kernel mode layer. A local attacker could use this issue
to write to protected memory and cause a denial of service.

Update instructions

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

Ubuntu 21.10
Ubuntu 20.04
Ubuntu 18.04

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