    We all should be thankful for the security problems closed source drivers brings us it makes the world more fun by showing us the failure of humanity.
    Imagine a perfect world no one can laugh about mistakes the humanity do and all the LOLz would be lost.
    Let us praise Nvidia for this kind of failure entertainment.
    I hope the security hole will stay forever to show us the perfection of the Closed-Source-Creator God like and holy Nvidia.
    Our salvation Nvidia, our good Nvidia, our whole Nvidia, our untouched Nvidia , our entire Nvidia all our source of creative energy, our a light in the dark Nvidia.
