Nvidia Guard Service (Nvidia Security Advisory)

Nvidia patch

I thought I would post this just in case there are people who are unaware of Nvidia's security issues. An older version showed up in My Sony Vaio Update System Tray. The vulnerability has been patched in Nvidia's latest driver updates. I'm fortunate that my Vaio F is directly supported by Nvidia but a lot of users will need to contact their PC manufacturers.

Nvidia Drivers


  1. Notebooks supporting Hybrid Power technology with Intel chipsets are not supported (NVIDIA Optimus technology is supported).
  2. The following Sony VAIO notebooks are included in the Geforce notebook program: Sony VAIO F Series with NVIDIA GeForce 310M, GeForce GT 330M, GeForce GT 425M, GeForce GT 520M or GeForce GT 540M. Other Sony VAIO notebooks are not included (please contact Sony for driver support).
  3. Fujitsu notebooks are not included (Fujitsu Siemens notebooks are included).

Never buy version 1.0 of anything.
