Well it has not been officially announced by nvidia so I thought I might give you guys a hint, that they did just put a new version on their ftp.
Sorry for the zero-day bump :/

It's also clearly a specialty driver for a specific system. According to NVIDIA the mentality is unless you were told to us it or have that specific system, nothing to see here... move along.

Now what would have been worthy bug report would have been one about the legacy driver updates.

But either way, I don't do ebuild changes on the weekend. Newer legacy drivers will come to the tree on Monday.
