IconA new nVIDIA display driver has been released which fixes the exploit reported last week. The driver was vulnerable to a buffer overflow that allowed an attacker to run arbitrary code as root. This bug could be exploited both locally as well as remotely (via a remote X client or an X client which visits a malicious web page).
