CVE ID Description Base Score Vector
CVE‑2021‑1106 NVIDIA Linux kernel distributions contain a vulnerability in nvmap, where writes may be allowed to read-only buffers, which may result in escalation of privileges, complete denial of service, unconstrained information disclosure, and serious data tampering of all processes on the system. 8.8 AV:L/AC:L/PR:L/UI:N/S:C/C:H/I:H/A:H
CVE‑2021‑1107 NVIDIA Linux kernel distributions contain a vulnerability in nvmap NVMAP_IOC_WRITE* paths, where improper access controls may lead to code execution, complete denial of service, and seriously compromised integrity of all system components. 8.8 AV:L/AC:L/PR:L/UI:N/S:C/C:H/I:H/A:H
CVE‑2021‑1108 NVIDIA Linux kernel distributions contain a vulnerability in FuSa Capture (VI/ISP), where integer underflow due to lack of input validation may lead to complete denial of service, partial integrity, and serious confidentiality loss for all processes in the system. 8.7 AV:L/AC:L/PR:L/UI:N/S:C/C:H/I:L/A:H
CVE‑2021‑1109 NVIDIA camera firmware contains a multistep, timing-related vulnerability where an unauthorized modification by camera resources may result in loss of data integrity or denial of service across several streams. 7.2 AV:L/AC:H/PR:H/UI:N/S:C/C:N/I:H/A:H
CVE‑2021‑1110 NVIDIA Linux kernel distributions on Jetson Xavier contain a vulnerability in camera firmware where a user can change input data after validation, which may lead to complete denial of service and serious data corruption of all kernel components. 7.1 AV:L/AC:L/PR:L/UI:N/S:U/C:N/I:H/A:H
CVE‑2021‑1111 Bootloader contains a vulnerability in the NV3P server where any user with physical access through USB can trigger an incorrect bounds check, which may lead to buffer overflow, resulting in limited information disclosure, limited data integrity, and information disclosure across all components. 6.7 AV:P/AC:L/PR:N/UI:N/S:C/C:L/I:L/A:H
CVE‑2021‑1112 NVIDIA Linux kernel distributions contain a vulnerability in nvmap, where a null pointer dereference may lead to complete denial of service. 5.5 AV:L/AC:L/PR:L/UI:N/S:U/C:N/I:N/A:H
CVE‑2021‑1113 NVIDIA camera firmware contains a vulnerability where an unauthorized modification by camera resources may result in complete denial of service and loss of partial data integrity for all clients. 6.1 AV:L/AC:H/PR:H/UI:N/S:C/C:N/I:L/A:H
CVE‑2021‑1114 NVIDIA Linux kernel distributions contain a vulnerability in the kernel crypto node, where use after free may lead to complete denial of service. 4.4 AV:L/AC:L/PR:H/UI:N/S:U/C:N/I:N/A:H
