Nvidia’s November 2019 update just fixed 11 mainly high-severity security flaws in its Windows and GeForce graphics card drivers, including three in the program used to update them.

Users often associate driver updates for graphics cards with performance, stability and general bug fixes but security has become almost as big an issue in recent years.

The three with the highest severity – CVE‑2019‑5690, CVE‑2019‑5691 and CVE‑2019‑5692 – are kernel mode flaws in the Nvidia Windows GPU display driver and which could be exploited to cause a crash or escalation of privileges.

The same component features a further four lower-rated flaws, CVE‑2019‑5692, CVE‑2019‑5693, CVE‑2019‑5695, and CVE‑2019‑5694, the latter requiring local access.
