Buffer Overflow in NVIDIA Binary Graphics Driver For Linux

Filed under: Driver, Hacking — rakeshvk @ 5:20 pm

The NVIDIA Binary Graphics Driver for Linux is vulnerable to a buffer overflow that allows an attacker to run arbitrary code as root. This bug can be exploited both locally or remotely (via a remote X client or an X client which visits a malicious web page).
A working proof-of-concept root exploit is included with this advisory.

The NVIDIA drivers for Solaris and FreeBSD are also likely to be vulnerable.
