NVIDIA CUDA Toolkit < 12.0 Update 1 Out of Bounds Read

medium Nessus Plugin ID 174903


The version of NVIDIA CUDA Toolkit installed on the remote host is affected by an out of bounds read flaw.


The version of NVIDIA CUDA Toolkit installed on the remote host is prior to 12.1 Update 1. It is, therefore, affected by a vulnerability in cuobjdump, where an attacker may cause an out-of-bounds read by tricking a user into running cuobjdump on a malformed input file. A successful exploit of this vulnerability may lead to limited denial of service, code execution, and limited information disclosure.

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 12.1 Update 1 or later.
