GLSA-200712-22 : Opera: Multiple vulnerabilities
Critical Nessus Plugin ID 29819
SynopsisThe remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related patches.
DescriptionThe remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200712-22 (Opera: Multiple vulnerabilities)
David Bloom reported two vulnerabilities where plug-ins (CVE-2007-6520) and Rich text editing (CVE-2007-6522) could be used to allow cross domain scripting. Alexander Klink (Cynops GmbH) discovered an issue with TLS certificates (CVE-2007-6521). Gynvael Coldwind reported that bitmaps might reveal random data from memory (CVE-2007-6524).
A remote attacker could exploit these vulnerabilities, possibly leading to the execution of arbitrary code and cross domain scripting.
There is no known workaround at this time.
SolutionAll Opera users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose '>=www-client/opera-9.25'
