There hasn't been conclusive information on this issue by Nvidia and no
updates have appeared for the security patches.

But there have been regressions found and fixed in 295.49 that affected
the older GeForce 6, 7, etc. cards, but that were unrelated to the
security fix.

So I assume the security fix is OK for the older cards as well (causing
no regressions) and uploaded the package.
Now I'm also preparing an update for nvidia-graphics-drivers-legacy-173xx.
