FreeBSD : opera -- execution of arbitrary code (85f33a8d-492f-11e2-aa75-003067c2616f)

High Nessus Plugin ID 63290


The remote FreeBSD host is missing one or more security-related updates.


Opera reports :

When loading GIF images into memory, Opera should allocate the correct amount of memory to store that image. Specially crafted image files can cause Opera to allocate the wrong amount of memory. Subsequent data may then overwrite unrelated memory with attacker-controlled data. This can lead to a crash, which may also execute that data as code.


Update the affected packages.
