CVE Description Base Score Vector
CVE‑2019‑5675 NVIDIA Windows GPU Display Driver contains a vulnerability in the kernel mode layer (nvlddmkm.sys) handler for DxgkDdiEscape where the product does not properly synchronize shared data, such as static variables across threads, which can lead to undefined behavior and unpredictable data changes, which may lead to denial of service, escalation of privileges, or information disclosure. 7.7 AV:L/AC:H/PR:L/UI:N/S:C/C:H/I:L/A:H
CVE‑2019‑5676 NVIDIA Windows GPU Display Driver installer software contains a vulnerability in which it incorrectly loads Windows system DLLs without validating the path or signature (also known as a binary planting or DLL preloading attack), leading to escalation of privileges through code execution. 7.2 AV:L/AC:H/PR:H/UI:R/S:C/C:H/I:H/A:H
CVE‑2019‑5677 NVIDIA Windows GPU Display Driver contains a vulnerability in the kernel mode layer (nvlddmkm.sys) handler for DeviceIoControl where the software reads from a buffer using buffer access mechanisms such as indexes or pointers that reference memory locations after the targeted buffer, which may lead to denial of service. 5.6 AV:L/AC:H/PR:L/UI:N/S:C/C:N/I:N/A:H
