TechPowerUp writes Peter Winter-Smith discovered a security hole in NVIDIA's display driver service that allows local and remote users (Windows firewall/file sharing permitting) to gain administrator privileges in Windows via a stack buffer overflow:
Mr. Winter-Smith posted a description and details of the exploit, in which he describes the NVIDIA Display Device server (NVVSVC) as listening on a pipe (a means by which different processes talk to each other) "pipensvr," which has an null/empty discretionary access control list (DACL, a security whitelist for users/groups), letting ordinary logged in local and remote users (firewall permitting, and the remote admin has a local account) to gain administrator rights to the system.
