Thanks to Uwe, I have this hilarious news to you:
The NVIDIA Binary Graphics Driver for Linux is vulnerable to a buffer overflow that allows an attacker to run arbitrary code as root. This bug can be exploited both locally or remotely (via a remote X client or an X client which visits a malicious web page). A working proof-of-concept root exploit is included with the advisory. The only possible solution (as NVIDIA still hasn't fixed the issue, although they know about it since 2004): Disable the binary blob driver and use the open-source "nv" driver that is included by default with X.
So, will you still whine when I tell you NOT to use the Nvidia propriatary closed-source buggy clumsy and awfull drivers?
