possible writes, "KernelTrap is reporting that the security research firm Rapid7 has published a working root exploit for a buffer overflow in NVIDIA's binary blob graphics driver for Linux. The NVIDIA drivers for FreeBSD and Solaris are also likely vulnerable. This will no doubt fuel the debate about whether binary blob drivers should be allowed in Linux." Rapid7's suggested action to mitigate this vulnerability: "Disable the binary blob driver and use the open-source 'nv' driver that is included by default with X."
