The AMD (147.89, 1.88, 1.29%) company has published a long list of security holes that make its Windows 10 graphics driver vulnerable to hacking.
The company says the vulnerabilities make its drivers vulnerable to malicious attacks, including:
denial of service
Arbitrary writes to kernel memory
The images below show the CVE IDs assigned to these vulnerabilities, a brief description, and the level of threat they pose.
Security researchers made AMD aware of the vulnerabilities, with Ori Nimron (Twitter (52.25, 0.27, 0.52%) username @orinimron123) contributing the most. The company says it has gradually patched these vulnerabilities with graphics driver updates, the most recent being the 21.4.1 driver, a large driver update for the Radeon 2020-21 that brings a slew of new features as well as lower power consumption.
Strangely, Intel (50.31, -0.22, -0.44%) is also caught in this situation, as the company builds its Kaby Lake G SKU with AMD’s Vega graphics. As a result, Intel also had to release a new graphics driver version 21.10.03.11 for Kaby Lake G, even though it was announced earlier as an end-of-life (EOL) product.
In addition to the issue report that AMD has already pointed out, Intel has added a report of its own dubbed “CVE-2021-33105.”
