NVIDIA CUDA Toolkit < 11.8 Buffer Overflow Vulnerability

medium Nessus Plugin ID 169508


The version of NVIDIA CUDA Toolkit installed on the remote host is affected by a buffer overflow vulnerability.


NVIDIA CUDA Toolkit SDK contains a stack-based buffer overflow vulnerability in cuobjdump, where an unprivileged remote attacker could exploit this buffer overflow condition by persuading a local user to download a specially crafted corrupted file and execute cuobjdump against it locally, which may lead to a limited denial of service and some loss of data integrity for the local user.

Note that Nessus has not tested for this issue but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.


Upgrade to NVIDIA CUDA Toolkit 11.8 or later.
