The GeForce 474.04 for Windows 10 and Windows 11 and GeForce 474.06 for Windows 7, Windows 8 and Windows 8.1 drivers fix buffer vulnerabilities with tags CVE-2022-3602 and CVE-2022-3786. Attackers could exploit these vulnerabilities during X.509 certificate validation by replacing a specially crafted email address that allows them to run code remotely. Both vulnerabilities have a threat status of “high”.

GeForce Security Update Driver GeForce 474.04 WHQL for Windows 10 and Windows 11 and GeForce 474.06 WHQL for Windows 7, Windows 8 and Windows 8.1 is for the following graphics cards:

  • GeForce 600 Series: GeForce GTX 690, GeForce GTX 680, GeForce GTX 670, GeForce GTX 660 Ti, GeForce GTX 660, GeForce GTX 650 Ti BOOST, GeForce GTX 650 Ti, GeForce GTX 650, GeForce GTX 645, GeForce GT 640, GeForce GT 635, GeForce GT 630;
