NVIDIOTS GET BANNED FROM THE COMPUTER ROOM!
>Andersen found the flaw when an "adult entertainment" video he watched re-appeared on his screen as he loaded the game Diablo III.
Fucking retard, this is how memory management generally works, you don't zero shit for no reason and waste cycles. Nvidia has done nothing wrong.
The one at fault here is Diablo for not clearing it's framebuffer.
>Andersen wrote an app to scan GPU memory for non-zero pixels
How is that possible from user space? I thought the kernel doesn't expose GPU memory.
Or, when they said "App" did they really mean kernel module?
>An application program (app or application for short) is a computer program designed to perform a group of coordinated functions, tasks, or activities for the benefit of the user. Examples of an application include a word processor, a spreadsheet, an accounting application, a web browser, a media player, an aeronautical flight simulator, a console game or a photo editor.
The term app has been used since before you were born, you little shit.
But application has a very particular meaning. It's an applied state of some specific theoretical body of data. A program that reads for non-zero data blocks isn't an application of any sort, it's just a program.
