Nvidia has released a security update to fix 10 vulnerabilities in its GPU drivers, including four high-severity vulnerabilities and six medium-severity vulnerabilities.
The four high severity flaws include CVE-2022-28181, CVE-2022-28182, CVE-2022-28183 and CVE-2022-28184.
CVE-2022-28181 (CVSS v3 score: 8.5) is an out-of-bounds bug caused by a specially crafted shader sent over the network. If exploited, this bug can lead to code execution, denial of service, privilege escalation, disclosure of information, and data manipulation.
CVE-2022-28182 (CVSS v3 score: 8.5) is a bug in the DirectX11 user mode driver. This bug allows an unauthorized attacker to send a specially crafted shader over the network. It may also cause a denial of service, privilege escalation, information disclosure, and data manipulation.
CVE-2022-28183 (CVSS v3 score: 7.7) is a bug found in the kernel mode layer. It allows an unprivileged regulator to initiate an unrestricted read that may lead to denial of service and disclosure of information.
CVE-2022-28184 (CVSS v3 score: 7.7) is a vulnerability in the kernel mode layer that allows a regular unprivileged user to access administrator-privileged registers, resulting in denial of service, disclosure of information, and data manipulation.
The vulnerabilities require low privileges and no user interaction, so they can be embedded in malware. This allows the attacker to execute commands with higher privileges.
The updates have been provided for Tesla, RTX/Quadro, NVS, Studio, and GeForce software products covering driver branches R450, R470, and R510.
