NVIDIA released a security update for the GeForce Now cloud gaming Windows app to address a vulnerability that could allow attackers to execute arbitrary code or escalate privileges on systems running unpatched software.

GeForce Now is a cloud-based game streaming service that allows users over 80 countries with paid subscriptions to stream free-to-play or games they own, in real-time, from a library of hundreds of titles hosted on NVIDIA's servers.

NVIDIA's cloud gaming service can be used by customers who own NVIDIA Shield, desktop (macOS, Microsoft Windows, and ChromeOS), or mobile (Android) devices via dedicated apps.
