Intel Graphics Driver Remote Code Execution And Denial of Service Vulnerabilities

Risk

Medium

Date Discovered

October 9, 2018

Description

Intel Graphics Driver is prone to a remote code-execution vulnerability and a denial-of-service vulnerability. Successfully exploiting these issues may allow an attacker to execute arbitrary code in the context of affected application or cause denial-of-service conditions. Intel Graphics Driver versions prior to 10.18.x.5056 (aka 15.33.x.5056), 10.18.x.5057 (aka 15.36.x.5057) and 20.19.x.5058 (aka 15.40.x.5058) are vulnerable.

Recommendations

Permit local access for trusted individuals only. Where possible, use restricted environments and restricted shells.
Ensure that only trusted users have local, interactive access to affected computers.

Implement multiple redundant layers of security.
Various memory-protection schemes (such as nonexecutable and randomly mapped memory segments) may hinder an attacker's ability to exploit this vulnerability to execute arbitrary code.

Updates are available. Please see the references or vendor advisory for more information.
