Changelog

nvidia-graphics-drivers (304.88-0ubuntu0.0.2) precise-security; urgency=low

  * SECURITY UPDATE: ARGB Cursor Buffer Overflow in "NoScanout" Mode
    - CVE-2013-0131

  * New upstream release
    - Fixed CVE-2013-0131:
      NVIDIA UNIX GPU Driver ARGB Cursor Buffer Overflow in
      "NoScanout" Mode. This buffer overflow, which occurred
      when an X client installed a large ARGB cursor on an
      X server running in NoScanout mode, could cause a denial
      of service (e.g., an X server segmentation fault), or
      could be exploited to achieve arbitrary code execution.

  [ Alberto Milone ]
  * debian/control{.in}:

  * debian/dkms.conf{.in}:
    - Drop all the patches.
  * debian/rules:
    - Make it possible to set the xserver ABIs in debian/substvars
  * debian/substvars:
    - Add support for xorg-video-abi-14.
    - Drop versioned dependency on xserver-xorg-core.
    - Add an alternative dependency on xserver-xorg-core-lts-quantal.

  [ Marc Deslauriers ]
  * debian/nvidia-current.install*: make sure we override the dkms.conf
    file from upstream.
