Severity: normal

Date: June 15, 2014
Bug(s): #442044, #444040, #446096, #454654
ID: 201406-14

Synopsis

Multiple vulnerabilities have been found in Opera, the worst of
which may allow remote execution of arbitrary code.


Background

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

Affected Packages

Package: www-client/opera
Vulnerable: < 12.13_p1734
Unaffected: >= 12.13_p1734
Architectures: All supported architectures


Description

Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in Opera. Please review
the CVE identifiers referenced below for details.


Impact

A remote attacker could entice a user to open a specially crafted web
page using Opera, possibly resulting in execution of arbitrary code with
the privileges of the process or a Denial of Service condition.
Furthermore, a remote attacker may be able to obtain sensitive
information, conduct Cross-Site Scripting (XSS) attacks, or bypass
security restrictions.
A local attacker may be able to obtain sensitive information.

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-12.13_p1734"
