b91234e7-9a8b-11e1-b666-001636d274f3NVIDIA UNIX driver -- access to arbitrary system memory

NVIDIA Unix security team reports:

Security vulnerability CVE-2012-0946 in the NVIDIA UNIX driver was disclosed to NVIDIA on March 20th, 2012. The vulnerability makes it possible for an attacker who has read and write access to the GPU device nodes to reconfigure GPUs to gain access to arbitrary system memory. NVIDIA is not aware of any reports of this vulnerability, outside of the disclosure which was made privately to NVIDIA.

NVIDIA has identified the root cause of the vulnerability and has released updated drivers which close it. [NVIDIA encourages] all users with Geforce 8 or newer, G80 Quadro or newer, and all Tesla GPUs to update their drivers to 295.40 or later.

Later, it was additionally discovered that similar exploit could be achieved through remapping of VGA window:

NVIDIA received notification of a security exploit that uses NVIDIA UNIX device files to map and program registers to redirect the VGA window. Through the VGA window, the exploit can access any region of physical system memory. This arbitrary memory access can be further exploited, for example, to escalate user privileges.

fdf72a0e-8371-11e4-bc20-001636d274f3NVIDIA UNIX driver -- remote denial of service or arbitrary code execution

NVIDIA Unix security team reports:

The GLX indirect rendering support supplied on NVIDIA products is subject to the recently disclosed X.Org vulnerabilities (CVE-2014-8093, CVE-2014-8098) as well as internally identified vulnerabilities (CVE-2014-8298).

Depending on how it is configured, the X server typically runs with raised privileges, and listens for GLX indirect rendering protocol requests from a local socket and potentially a TCP/IP port. The vulnerabilities could be exploited in a way that causes the X server to access uninitialized memory or overwrite arbitrary memory in the X server process. This can cause a denial of service (e.g., an X server segmentation fault), or could be exploited to achieve arbitrary code execution.
