Drivers are often designed to be flexible and offer features that third-party software can access. However, although Microsoft issues drivers with digital signatures, they are not necessarily secure.
Hackers like to use the vulnerabilities in drivers to gain unauthorized access to other systems. The only effective protection is to install the latest drivers in which the security leak has already been closed.
