NVIDIA Windows GPU Display Driver contains a vulnerability in DirectX 10 Usermode driver, where specially crafted pixel shader can cause writing to unallocated memory leading to denial of service or potential code execution.
An exploitable heap memory corruption vulnerability exists in the NVIDIA D3D10 Driver 184.108.40.20607. A specially crafted pixel shader can cause heap memory corruption, resulting in at least denial of service, and potential code execution. An attacker can provide a specially crafted shader file (either in binary or text form) to trigger this vulnerability. This vulnerability can be triggered from a VMware guest, and the VMware host will be affected (potentially leading to VMware crash or guest-to-host escape).
