Synopsis :

The remote openSUSE host is missing a security update.

Description :

The webbrowser Opera has been upgraded to version 9.0 to add lots of
new features, and to fix the following security problem :

CVE-2006-3198: An integer overflow vulnerability exists in the Opera
Web Browser due to the improper handling of JPEG files.

If excessively large height and width values are specified in certain
fields of a JPEG file, an integer overflow may cause Opera to allocate
insufficient memory for the image. This will lead to a buffer overflow
when the image is loaded into memory, which can be exploited to
execute arbitrary code.

This updates the previous version, which had a directory conflict.

Solution :

Update the affected opera package.

Risk factor :

High / CVSS Base Score : 7.5
(CVSS2#AV:N/AC:L/Au:N/C:P/I:P/A:P)
