Hello,

Could a CVE please be assigned to the following issue:

The binary NVidia Linux driver allows local users to access
arbitrary memory locations by leveraging GPU device-node read/write
privileges, and escalate privileges to root. Possibly an incomplete
fix for CVE-2012-0946.

See:

http://seclists.org/fulldisclosure/2012/Aug/4

Thanks,

Marc.

I do Open Source CVE assignments only, the Nvidia driver is binary
only and closed source. You'll need to go to Mitre to get a CVE for
this: cve-assign () mitre org (they handle the closed source stuff).
