Now, you should know that a possible attacker would have to have local access to your PC in order to take advantage of many of these vulnerabilities. Despite this, it is a serious situation that can put some at risk, which is why Nvidia considers them as high-risk vulnerabilities. We recommend that you install the update as soon as possible.
Of course, you should not expect the update to bring any specific improvement for a game. Let’s remember that, although Nvidia usually releases drivers to optimize the use of its cards in different releases, the reality is that this patch is only focused on security.
