    Zyxel backdoor (CVE-2020-29583) is actively exploited

It's when those bugs can compromise the security of a PC that a bug goes from an annoyance to a potential real danger. Security issues with apps can be worked around in the interim, even if it means uninstalling it, but what about when the security vulnerability is in the driver for some critical piece of hardware; say a video adapter? When that happens, developers have to isolate the cause and act quickly to plug the holes, or else risk any PC with that hardware being open to attack. Such was the case for NVIDIA this week.

    The GeForce, Quadro, and AI accelerator maker has issued a series of driver updates this week to prevent ten years of graphics hardware from being susceptible to attacks. This is a big deal is because like video drivers from all major vendors, NVIDIA's drivers run in kernel mode with additional unrestricted access in the name of better performance. That's true of the oldest hardware on the market up to and including the latest Ampere GPUs from the GeForce RTX 30 Series....
