High Nessus Plugin ID 100570


The remote Ubuntu host is missing one or more security-related patches.


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.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.


Update the affected nvidia-367 and / or nvidia-375 packages.
