Gentoo Linux Security Advisory

Title: Opera: Multiple vulnerabilities (GLSA 200804-14)
Severity: normal
Exploitable: remote
Date: April 14, 2008
Bug(s): #216022
ID: 200804-14

Synopsis


Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in Opera, allowing for
execution of arbitrary code.


Background


Opera is a fast web browser that is available free of charge.


Affected Packages

Package: www-client/opera
Vulnerable: < 9.27
Unaffected: >= 9.27
Architectures: All supported architectures


Description


Michal Zalewski reported two vulnerabilities, memory corruption when
adding news feed sources from a website (CVE-2008-1761) as well as when
processing HTML CANVAS elements to use scaled images (CVE-2008-1762).
Additionally, an unspecified weakness related to keyboard handling of
password inputs has been reported (CVE-2008-1764).


Impact


A remote attacker could entice a user to visit a specially crafted web
site or news feed and possibly execute arbitrary code with the
privileges of the user running Opera.


Workaround


There is no known workaround at this time.


Resolution


All Opera users should upgrade to the latest version:
Code:
# emerge --sync
    # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=www-client/opera-9.27"
