GPUs From All Major Suppliers Are Vulnerable To New Pixel-Stealing Attack


According to a recent article GPUs from all major suppliers are vulnerable to new pixel-stealing attack.

How does that affect Qubes OS?

Not at all. Qubes OS does not allow VMs to use GPU for rendering, so there is no risk of this (or any similar) attack.


Furthermore, it seems the title is very click-baity. It seems to be more like Chrome bug, than a GPU bug.


Can the proprietary firmware of the video card (installed in dom0) exploit the vulnerability and act further e.g. through the video driver?
