NVIDIA Graphics Driver 340.x < 341.92 / 352.x < 354.35 / 358.x < 358.87 Multiple Vulnerabilities
High Nessus Plugin ID 87412
SynopsisThe remote Windows host is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.
DescriptionThe version of the NVIDIA graphics driver installed on the remote Windows host is 340.x prior to 341.92, 352.x prior to 354.35, or 358.x prior to 358.87. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities :
- A privilege escalation vulnerability exists in the Stereoscopic 3D Driver Service due to improper restriction of access to the 'stereosvrpipe' named pipe.
An adjacent attacker can exploit this to execute arbitrary command line arguments, resulting in an escalation of privileges. (CVE-2015-7865)
- A privilege escalation vulnerability exists due to an unquoted Windows search path issue in the Smart Maximize Helper (nvSmartMaxApp.exe). A local attacker can exploit this to escalate privileges. (CVE-2015-7866)
- Multiple privilege escalation vulnerabilities exist in the NVAPI support layer due to multiple unspecified integer overflow conditions in the underlying kernel mode driver. A local attacker can exploit these issues to gain access to uninitialized or out-of-bounds memory, resulting in an escalation of privileges.
SolutionUpgrade to video driver version 341.92 / 354.35 / 358.87 or later.
