*Nix Nvidia binary root exploit



There appears to be a working root exploit against the binary NVidia driver for *nix based systems. It’s reported at kerneltrap.org It was resolved a few weeks back by the release of version 1.0-9625 of the Nvidia binary graphic driver. Linux has been primarily mentioned in these stories, but likely other Unixes (Unices)? are affected as well. (Since it seems to be the binary driver from Nvidia at fault.)
