Searched, didn't see.

Bulletin: https://nvidia.custhelp.com/app/answ...tail/a_id/4278
Get your updated drivers: http://www.nvidia.com/download/index.aspx (Dec. 13/14th, 2016 [376.33] includes fix)

NVIDIA Windows GPU Display Driver contains a vulnerability in the kernel mode layer (nvlddmkm.sys) handler for DxgDdiEscape where improper access controls may allow a user to access arbitrary physical memory, leading to an escalation of privileges.

I'm pretty lazy when updating since if it works I don't like touching it, and I know many are the same way.

So the version they're saying to update to is safe but is it stable? Every release since this summer has been fucked in some way.

I was just wondering last week after the new driver notification popped up if I should even bother keeping it updated having a 970, at this point it's all about the 10 series anyway. But I guess it's not quite optional.

I stopped updating because of all the problems they've been having with the newer drivers. I'm betting I wasn't the only one. Guess I'll give these a shot. I'm sure someone will wonder if they decided to come up with this scare so they could encourage people to update to their latest.

Ever since the last couple updates I've had hard locks on my laptop forcing me to force restart, and it occurs when I full screen a video on my second monitor. Is there a way to roll back multiple updates and/or pick the driver to roll back to?

Just recently got back into pc gaming and I swear to god everything that annoyed me 5 to 10 years has only exercabated since. And the gap between pc and consoles shrank considerably that really the only benefits I've seen is fps and iq which pale to the bells and whistle of old. Shit like this just isn't worth it.

Uninstall that bloatware, it does nothing for you and uses 6 processes. Keep it only if you need Shadowplay functionality.

They should really test out their drivers more before releasing them. Do they have some sort of preview or beta program? Sounds like they need to start one after the past six months of... this.

Holy shit. After the crapfest that were the 364.72, I just downloaded drivers from last fall and haven't bothered to upgrade yet. They've been releasing bad driver after bad driver. What the hell is going on?

What's been happening with EVGA? I have an EVGA 1080.

If you aren't going to iron out the kinks before releasing the drivers, don't bother releasing them. No incremental performance increase is worth this.

Ugh, I'll just fucking update in the new year. I'm sure there will be 4 more drivers released by that point (the third of which will re-introduce the vulnerability described in this thread, no doubt).

Getting real tired of your shit, Nvidia.

I never thought I would have to tear apart a graphics card, but then 2016 came along.

Every time I try install the driver I get "7-zip data error"

Nvidia's support page says its because of a corrupt download so try again / use a diffrent browser.

I tried again using a different browser and am getting the same message.

Support page also says it might be caused of router or other internet things messing it up but I have never had any issue when them before today.

It's as if Nvidia and AMD switched driver departments, the latter has been getting much much better since Crimson, while Nvidia just..does what Nvidia does. I guess when you're top dog anyway it doesn't really matter

Pass, I updated my drivers yesterday and had to immediately uninstall them due to an even worse framerate in Overwatch along with the fans cranking up to max and staying there. If it weren't for OW complaining that my drivers were far too old I'd still be on the ones from circa Payday 2's launch, they were the only ones that fixed the stupid blank grey screen bug which Nvidia managed to unfix and ignore.

overheating on pascal cards, sometimes cards would catch on fire

http://www.gamersnexus.net/news-pc/2...naway-scenario

EVGA admitted fault. They put out an updated bios to help fix the problem and offered a free thermal pad for all affected owners, and offered to replace their cards.

it's not an nvidia problem, just an EVGA problem.

I had to roll back quite a ways because the more recent ones were giving me too many problems.

Bleh. Think I'll hold off still though for a bit and see how things shake out.

I want to know this too. Does this affect literally every version before this or just some recent version (376.xx)?
