The NVIDIA graphics driver installed on the remote host is affected by a privilege escalation vulnerability in the NVAPI support layer due to multiple unspecified integer overflow conditions in the underlying kernel mode driver. A local attacker can exploit this to gain access to uninitialized or out-of-bounds memory, resulting in possible information disclosure, denial of service, or the gaining of elevated privileges.
