Today NVIDIA put out a new security bulletin, to highlight multiple security issues identified in their proprietary graphics driver for Linux and Windows.

All driver versions below 555.52.04, 550.90.07, 535.183.01 and 470.256.02 are affected. So depending on the driver series you go for, make sure you're on at least one of those or above.

From the announcement these are the ones that affect either both Linux and Windows or just Linux:

CVE ID Description Severity CWE Impacts
CVE‑2024‑0090 NVIDIA GPU driver for Windows and Linux contains a vulnerability where a user can cause an out-of-bounds write. A successful exploit of this vulnerability might lead to code execution, denial of service, escalation of privileges, information disclosure, and data tampering. High CWE‑787 Code execution, denial of service, escalation of privileges, information disclosure, data tampering
CVE‑2024‑0091 NVIDIA GPU Display Driver for Windows and Linux contains a vulnerability where a user can cause an untrusted pointer dereference by executing a driver API.

CVE‑2024‑0092 NVIDIA GPU Driver for Windows and Linux contains a vulnerability where an improper check or improper handling of exception conditions might lead to denial of service. Medium CWE‑703 Denial of service
