Ubuntu 12.04 LTS / 14.04 LTS / 14.10 : nvidia-graphics-drivers-304, nvidia-graphics-drivers-304-updates, nvidia-graphics-drivers-331, nvidia-graphics-drivers-331-updates vulnerabilities (USN-2438-1)

Description

It was discovered that the NVIDIA graphics drivers incorrectly handled GLX indirect rendering support. An attacker able to connect to an X server, either locally or remotely, could use these issues to cause the X server to crash or execute arbitrary code resulting in possible privilege escalation.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
