Description

Issue Overview:

NVIDIA Windows GPU Display Driver contains a vulnerability in the kernel mode layer (nvlddmkm.sys) handler for DxgkDdiEscape where a NULL pointer dereference may lead to denial of service or possible escalation of privileges. (CVE-2018-6247 __)

NVIDIA Windows GPU Display Driver contains a vulnerability in the kernel mode layer handler for DxgkDdiEscape where the software uses a sequential operation to read or write a buffer, but it uses an incorrect length value that causes it to access memory that is outside of the bounds of the buffer which may lead to denial of service or possible escalation of privileges. (CVE-2018-6248 __)

NVIDIA GPU Display Driver contains a vulnerability in kernel mode layer handler where a NULL pointer dereference may lead to denial of service or potential escalation of privileges. (CVE-2018-6249 __)

NVIDIA Windows GPU Display Driver contains a vulnerability in the kernel mode layer (nvlddmkm.sys) handler for DxgkDdiEscape where a NULL pointer dereference occurs, which may lead to denial of service or possible escalation of privileges. (CVE-2018-6250 __)

NVIDIA Windows GPU Display Driver contains a vulnerability in the DirectX 10 Usermode driver, where a specially crafted pixel shader can cause writing to unallocated memory, leading to denial of service or potential code execution. (CVE-2018-6251 __)

NVIDIA Windows GPU Display Driver contains a vulnerability in the kernel mode layer handler for DxgkDdiEscape where the software allows an actor access to restricted functionality that is unnecessary for production usage, and which may result in denial of service. (CVE-2018-6252 __)

NVIDIA GPU Display Driver contains a vulnerability in the DirectX and OpenGL Usermode drivers where a specially crafted pixel shader can cause infinite recursion leading to denial of service. (CVE-2018-6253 __)
