Just had this brought to my attention on Woody Leonhard's page.

Günter Born just posted a warning that NVIDIA graphics drivers contain kernel-mode vulnerabilities.

NVIDIA’s Security Bulletin 4462, issued May 9 and updated today, lists 15 separate security holes, each identified with a CVE number.

NVIDIA GPU Display Driver contains a vulnerability in the kernel mode layer handler

Better get your NVIDIA drivers checked. GeForce drivers should be at 10.18.13.8205 or later. You can check your NVIDIA driver version number through Device Manager.

I had to manually download the latest version, the automated search on the Nvidia site failed because of Java. The NVIDIA page is below

I created a restore point before updating the driver, as you should.
Update went ahead smoothly without even a need for a reboot.

Checked that MOULa still runs OK after the upgrade, and all is good.
