Bug(s): #73871, #74076, #74321, #81747
ID: 200502-17

Synopsis

Opera is vulnerable to several vulnerabilities which could result in information disclosure and facilitate execution of arbitrary code.

Background

Opera is a multi-platform web browser.

Affected Packages

Package: www-client/opera
Vulnerable: < 7.54-r3
Unaffected: >= 7.54-r3
Architectures: All supported architectures


Description

Opera contains several vulnerabilities:
  • fails to properly validate Content-Type and filename.
  • fails to properly validate date: URIs.
  • uses kfmclient exec as the Default Application to handle downloaded files when integrated with KDE.
  • fails to properly control frames.
  • uses Sun Java packages insecurely.
  • searches an insecure path for plugins.


Impact

An attacker could exploit these vulnerabilities to:
  • execute arbitrary code.
  • load a malicious frame in the context of another browser session.
  • leak information.


Workaround

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution

All Opera users should upgrade to the latest version:
