Nvidia said some of its chipsets have been affected by Spectre, a memory corruption flaw that allows hackers to bypass operating systems and steal passwords of devices.

The company is providing a initial security update to mitigate the vulnerabilities to its affected chipsets, which include GeForce, Tesla, Grid, NVS and Quadro, it said in a blogpost on Tuesday.
