The latest Nvidia display driver fixed the security holes

According to ThreatPost report’s posted on Nvidia security bulletin, the security problem in the previous display driver version comes from two main reasons. The first reason is the driver’s kernel mode layer handle component, which caused shared data to synchronized abnormally. This put those data under the risk of malicious attacks. The second reason is due to the driver’s package installer. ThreatPost addresses that the installer malfunctions, loading Window system DLLs without validating their paths or signatures.
