NVIDIA Linux GPU Display Driver 304.x < 304.134 / 340.x < 340.101 / 361.x < 361.107 / 375.x < 375.26 GPU Interrupt Saturation DoS
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 96001
SynopsisA display driver installed on the remote Linux host is affected by a denial of service vulnerability.
DescriptionThe version of the NVIDIA GPU display driver installed on the remote Linux host is 304.x prior to 304.134, 340.x prior to 340.101, 361.x prior to 361.107 (Tesla P100), 375.x prior to 375.20 (Tesla P100), or 375.x prior to 370.26. It is, therefore, affected by a denial of service vulnerability due to a flaw in the kernel mode layer (nvidia.ko) driver. A local attacker can exploit this to cause GPU interrupt saturation, resulting in a denial of service condition.
SolutionUpgrade the NVIDIA graphics driver to version 304.134 / 340.101 / 361.107 / 375.20 (Tesla P100 Series) / 375.26 or later in accordance with the vendor advisory.
