Description

The version of the NVIDIA GPU display driver installed on the remote Windows host is 375.x prior to 377.35 or 382.x prior to 382.05. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities :

  • An uninitialized pointer flaw exists in the kernel mode layer (nvlddmkm.sys) handler for DxgDdiEscape due to improper validation of user-supplied input. A local attacker can exploit this to cause a denial of service condition or potentially to gain elevated privileges. (CVE-2017-0341)

  • An out-of-bounds access error exists in the kernel mode layer (nvlddmkm.sys) handler due to certain incorrect calculations. A local attacker can exploit this to cause a denial of service condition or potentially to gain elevated privileges. (CVE-2017-0342)

  • A race condition exists in the kernel mode layer (nvlddmkm.sys) handler due to improper synchronization of certain functions. A local attacker can exploit this to cause a denial of service condition or potentially to gain elevated privileges. (CVE-2017-0343)

  • An unspecified flaw exists in the kernel mode layer (nvlddmkm.sys) handler for DxgDdiEscape that allows a local attacker to access arbitrary physical memory and gain elevated privileges. (CVE-2017-0344)

  • An out-of-bounds access error exists in the kernel mode layer (nvlddmkm.sys) handler for DxgDdiEscape due to improper validation of user-supplied array size input. A local attacker can exploit this to cause a denial of service condition or potentially to gain elevated privileges. (CVE-2017-0345)

  • A buffer overflow condition exists in the kernel mode layer (nvlddmkm.sys) handler for DxgDdiEscape due to improper validation of user-supplied input. A local attacker can exploit this to cause a denial of service condition or potentially to gain elevated privileges. (CVE-2017-0346)

  • An array-indexing error exists in the kernel mode layer (nvlddmkm.sys) handler for DxgkDdiEscape due to improper validation of user-supplied input. A local attacker can exploit this to cause a denial of service condition or potentially to gain elevated privileges. (CVE-2017-0347)

  • A NULL pointer dereference flaw exists in the kernel mode layer (nvlddmkm.sys) handler due to improper validation of user-supplied input. A local attacker can exploit this to cause a denial of service condition or potentially to gain elevated privileges. (CVE-2017-0348)

  • An invalid pointer flaw exists in the kernel mode layer (nvlddmkm.sys) handler for DxgkDdiEscape due to improper validation of a user-supplied pointer before it is dereferenced for a write operation. A local attacker can exploit this to cause a denial of service condition or potentially to gain elevated privileges. (CVE-2017-0349)

  • A flaw exists in the kernel mode layer handler for DxgDdiEscape due to the driver improperly locking on certain conditions. A local attacker can exploit this to cause a denial of service condition. (CVE-2017-0353)

  • A flaw exists in the kernel mode layer handler for DxgkDdiEscape where a call to certain functions requiring lower IRQL can be made under raised IRQL. A local attacker can exploit this to cause a denial of service condition. (CVE-2017-0354)

  • A flaw exists in the kernel mode layer handler for DxgkDdiEscape due to accessing paged memory while holding a spin lock. A local attacker can exploit this to cause a denial of service condition. (CVE-2017-0355)
