NVIDIA Windows GPU Display Driver 340.x / 341.x / 342.x < 342.00 / 375.x < 375.63 Multiple Vulnerabilities

High Nessus Plugin ID 94576

Synopsis

A display driver installed on the remote Windows host is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.

Description

The version of the NVIDIA GPU display driver installed on the remote Windows host is 340.x, 341.x, or 342.x prior to 342.00, or 375.x prior to 375.63. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities :

- An array-indexing error exists in nvlddmkm.sys due to improper validation of input. A local attacker can exploit this to cause a denial of service condition or the execution of arbitrary code with elevated privileges. (CVE-2016-7381)

- A flaw exists in nvlddmkm.sys due to missing permission checks. A local attacker can exploit this to disclose arbitrary memory contents and gain elevated privileges.
(CVE-2016-7382)

- A flaw exists in nvlddmkm.sys when handling memory mapping that allows a local attacker to cause a denial of service condition or the execution of arbitrary code with elevated privileges. (CVE-2016-7383)

- A flaw exists in nvlddmkm.sys when handling UVMLiteController device IO control input and output lengths. A local attacker can exploit this to execute arbitrary code with elevated privileges. (CVE-2016-7384)

- An untrusted pointer dereference flaw exists in nvlddmkm.sys when handling DxgDdiEscape ID 0x700010d. A local attacker can exploit this to cause a denial of service condition or the execution of arbitrary code with elevated privileges. (CVE-2016-7385)

- A flaw exists in nvlddmkm.sys when handling DxgDdiEscape ID 0x70000d4 that allows a local attacker to disclose uninitialized memory contents. (CVE-2016-7386)

- A flaw exists in nvlddmkm.sys when handling DxgDdiEscape ID 0x600000d that allows a local attacker to cause a denial of service condition or the execution of arbitrary code with elevated privileges. (CVE-2016-7387)

- A NULL pointer dereference flaw exists in nvlddmkm.sys that allows a local attacker to cause a denial of service condition or the execution of arbitrary code with elevated privileges in certain unsafe configurations. (CVE-2016-7388)

- An array-indexing error exists in nvlddmkm.sys when handling DxgDdiEscape ID 0x7000194 that allows a local attacker to cause a denial of service condition or the execution of arbitrary code with elevated privileges.
(CVE-2016-7390)

- A flaw exists in nvlddmkm.sys when handling DxgDdiEscape ID 0x100010b that allows a local attacker to cause a denial of service condition or the execution of arbitrary code with elevated privileges. (CVE-2016-7391)

- A flaw exists in nvlddmkm.sys when handling DxgDdiEscape ID 0x7000014 that allows a local attacker to cause a denial of service condition or the execution of arbitrary code with elevated privileges. (CVE-2016-8805)

- An untrusted pointer dereference flaw exists in nvlddmkm.sys when handling DxgDdiEscape ID 0x5000027 that allows a local attacker to cause a denial of service condition or the execution of arbitrary code with elevated privileges. (CVE-2016-8806)

- A stack-based buffer overflow condition exists in nvlddmkm.sys when handling DxgDdiEscape ID 0x10000e9 that allows a local attacker to cause a denial of service condition or the execution of arbitrary code with elevated privileges. (CVE-2016-8807)

- A buffer overflow condition exists in nvlddmkm.sys when handling DxgDdiEscape ID 0x70000d that allows a local attacker to cause a denial of service condition or the execution of arbitrary code with elevated privileges.
(CVE-2016-8808)

- A buffer overflow condition exists in nvlddmkm.sys when handling DxgDdiEscape ID 0x70001b2 that allows a local attacker to cause a denial of service condition or the execution of arbitrary code with elevated privileges.
(CVE-2016-8809)

- A buffer overflow condition exists in nvlddmkm.sys when handling DxgDdiEscape ID 0x100009a that allows a local attacker to cause a denial of service condition or the execution of arbitrary code with elevated privileges.
(CVE-2016-8810)

- A flaw exists in nvlddmkm.sys driver when handling DxgDdiEscape ID 0x7000170 that allows a local attacker to cause a denial of service condition or the execution of arbitrary code with elevated privileges.
(CVE-2016-8811)

- A stack-based overflow condition exists in nvstreamkms.sys when handling executable paths. A local attacker can exploit this to execute arbitrary code with elevated privileges. Note that this vulnerability only affects systems that also have GeForce Experience software installed. (CVE-2016-8812)

Solution

Upgrade the NVIDIA graphics driver to version 342.00 / 375.63 or later in accordance with the vendor advisory.
