Synopsis
========

A vulnerability in NVIDIA drivers may allow a local attacker to gain
escalated privileges.

Background
==========

The NVIDIA drivers provide X11 and GLX support for NVIDIA graphic
boards.

Affected packages
=================

-------------------------------------------------------------------
Package / Vulnerable / Unaffected
-------------------------------------------------------------------
1 x11-drivers/nvidia-drivers
< 295.40 >= 295.40

Description
===========

A vulnerability has been found in the way NVIDIA drivers handle
read/write access to GPU device nodes, allowing access to arbitrary
system memory locations.

NOTE: Exposure to this vulnerability is reduced in Gentoo due to 660
permissions being used on the GPU device nodes by default.

Impact
======

A local attacker could gain escalated privileges.

Workaround
==========

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution
==========

All NVIDIA driver users should upgrade to the latest version:

# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot -v ">=x11-drivers/nvidia-drivers-295.40"
