Nvidia Releases Driver Update to Fix Security Exploit
I recommend you get this if you have an Nvidia card, now that the exploit is public there will soon be code in the wild to take advantage of this security hole. My experience with the upgrade was fast and painless, between download, file extraction and installation it was less than fifteen minutes of time and it did not take a computer restart.
On Saturday, the firm made the new WHQL-certified graphics drivers — version 310.90 — available. The release notes say that the file “adds a security update for the NVIDIA Display Driver service (nvvsvc.exe).” However, it does not mention the fact that U.K. researcher Peter Winter-Smith discovered a flaw in December which makes the display driver service vulnerable to buffer overflow and code injection attacks. In other words, the security flaw could potentially be used by a remote attacker with a domain account to gain access to a system running older drivers.
In addition to killing off the security flaw, the driver update also comes complete with a number of bug fixes and performance enhancements for some gaming titles. New 3D Vision profiles have been added, and faster performance will improve a number of PC games including Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 and Assassin’s Creed III.
