NVIDIA Virtual GPU Manager Multiple Vulnerabilities (August 2022)

high Nessus Plugin ID 163882


A GPU virtualization application installed on the remote host is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.


The NVIDIA Virtual GPU Manager software on the remote host is missing a security update. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities, including the following:

- A vulnerability that allows the guest VM to allocate resources for which the guest is not authorized, leading to a loss of confidentiality, integrity, and availability. (CVE-2022-31609)

- A double-free flaw that can be exploited by an attacker with other vulnerabilities to cause a denial of service, code execution, or information disclosure. (CVE-2022-31614)

- A null pointer dereference which can lead to a denial of service. (CVE-2022-31618) Note that Nessus has not tested for these issues but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.


Update NVIDIA vGPU Manager software to version 11.9, 13.4, 14.2 or later.
