Security Bulletin

Summary

NVIDIA has released an update to address the following vulnerabilities in GPU
Display Drivers for Linux and Windows.

Vulnerability Details

CVEID: CVE-2018-6260
DESCRIPTION: NVIDIA graphics driver could allow a local authenticated attacker
to obtain sensitive information, caused by a flaw in the GPU performance
counters. By sending a specially-crafted request, an attacker could exploit
this vulnerability to obtain sensitive information.
CVSS Base Score: 2.2
CVSS Temporal Score: See https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/
152869 for the current score
CVSS Environmental Score*: Undefined
CVSS Vector: (CVSS:3.0/AV:L/AC:H/PR:L/UI:R/S:U/C:L/I:N/A:N)

CVEID: CVE-2019-5671
DESCRIPTION: NVIDIA GeForce Windows GPU Display driver is vulnerable to a
denial of service, caused by a flaw in the handler for DxgkDdiEscape in kernel
mode layer (nvlddmkm.sys). By sending a specially-crafted request, a remote
attacker could exploit this vulnerability to cause a denial of service
condition.
CVSS Base Score: 6.5
CVSS Temporal Score: See https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/
157948 for the current score
CVSS Environmental Score*: Undefined
CVSS Vector: (CVSS:3.0/AV:L/AC:L/PR:L/UI:N/S:C/C:N/I:N/A:H)

CVEID: CVE-2019-5670
DESCRIPTION: NVIDIA GeForce Windows GPU Display driver could allow a local
authenticated attacker to execute arbitrary code on the system, caused by a
flaw in the handler for DxgkDdiEscape in kernel mode layer (nvlddmkm.sys). By
sending a specially-crafted request, an attacker could exploit this
vulnerability to execute arbitrary code, cause a denial of service condition,
gain elevated privileges or obtain sensitive information.
CVSS Base Score: 8.8
CVSS Temporal Score: See https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/
157947 for the current score
CVSS Environmental Score*: Undefined
CVSS Vector: (CVSS:3.0/AV:L/AC:L/PR:L/UI:N/S:C/C:H/I:H/A:H)

CVEID: CVE-2019-5669
DESCRIPTION: NVIDIA GeForce Windows GPU Display driver is vulnerable to a
denial of service, caused by a flaw in the handler for DxgkDdiEscape in kernel
mode layer (nvlddmkm.sys). By sending a specially-crafted request, a remote
attacker could exploit this vulnerability to cause a denial of service
condition, or gain elevated privileges.
CVSS Base Score: 8.8
CVSS Temporal Score: See https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/
157946 for the current score
CVSS Environmental Score*: Undefined
CVSS Vector: (CVSS:3.0/AV:L/AC:L/PR:L/UI:N/S:C/C:H/I:H/A:H)

CVEID: CVE-2019-5668
DESCRIPTION: NVIDIA GeForce Windows GPU Display driver is vulnerable to a
denial of service, caused by a flaw in the handler for
DxgkDdiSubmitCommandVirtual in kernel mode layer (nvlddmkm.sys). By sending a
specially-crafted request, a remote attacker could exploit this vulnerability
to cause a denial of service condition, or gain elevated privileges.
CVSS Base Score: 8.8
CVSS Temporal Score: See https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/
157945 for the current score
CVSS Environmental Score*: Undefined
CVSS Vector: (CVSS:3.0/AV:L/AC:L/PR:L/UI:N/S:C/C:H/I:H/A:H)

CVEID: CVE-2019-5667
DESCRIPTION: NVIDIA GeForce Windows GPU Display driver could allow a local
authenticated attacker to execute arbitrary code on the system, caused by a
flaw in the handler for DxgkDdiSetRootPageTable in kernel mode layer
(nvlddmkm.sys). By sending a specially-crafted request, an attacker could
exploit this vulnerability to execute arbitrary code, cause a denial of service
condition or gain elevated privileges.
CVSS Base Score: 8.8
CVSS Temporal Score: See https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/

CVSS Vector: (CVSS:3.0/AV:L/AC:L/PR:L/UI:N/S:C/C:H/I:H/A:H)

CVEID: CVE-2019-5666
DESCRIPTION: NVIDIA GeForce Windows GPU Display driver is vulnerable to a
denial of service, caused by improper calculating or using an array index in
the kernel mode layer (nvlddmkm.sys). By sending a specially-crafted request, a
local authenticated attacker could exploit this vulnerability to cause a denial
of service condition, or gain elevated privileges.
CVSS Base Score: 8.8
CVSS Temporal Score: See https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/
157943 for the current score
CVSS Environmental Score*: Undefined
CVSS Vector: (CVSS:3.0/AV:L/AC:L/PR:L/UI:N/S:C/C:H/I:H/A:H)

CVEID: CVE-2019-5665
DESCRIPTION: NVIDIA GeForce Windows GPU Display driver could allow a local
authenticated attacker to execute arbitrary code on the system, caused by
improper handling of hard links in the 3D vision component. By using a
specially-crafted file, an attacker could exploit this vulnerability to execute
arbitrary code, cause a denial of service condition or gain elevated
privileges.
