Opera < 9.10 Multiple Vulnerabilities

Medium

Synopsis

The remote host is vulnerable to multiple attack vectors.

Description

The version of Opera installed on the remote host reportedly contains a heap overflow vulnerability that can be triggered when processing the DHT marker in a specially-crafted JPEG image to crash the browser or possibly allow execution of arbitrary code on the affected host. In addition, another flaw in Opera's createSVGTransformFromMatrix object typecasting may lead to a browser crash or arbitrary code execution if support for Javascript is enabled.

Solution

Upgrade to version 9.10 or higher.
