AMD disables automatic driver updating due to security vulnerability

AMD announced its Catalyst 13.1 driver will get rid of automatic driver updating due to a minor security vulnerability in the auto-update notification. In a message on its website, the company recommends users to disable the AMD Catalyst driver update notifications to mitigate potential attacks.
AMD will be removing the auto-update notification functionality from versions of AMD Catalyst™ Control Center running under Windows Vista, Windows 7 and Windows 8, beginning in early 2013. Due to a minor security vulnerability in the auto-update notification, users are recommended to update to the latest AMD Catalyst™ driver release from the amd.com web site. Alternatively, users should (i) uncheck the “Automatically check for updates” option under AMD Catalyst Control Center > Information > Software Update, and (ii) choose to “Skip” notifications from the AMD Catalyst driver, which notifications recommend updating to the latest driver.
