|Package||www-client/opera on all architectures|
|Affected versions||< 9.64|
|Unaffected versions||>= 9.64|
Opera is a fast web browser that is available free of charge.
Multiple vulnerabilities were discovered in Opera:
A remote attacker could entice a user to open a specially crafted JPEG image to cause a Denial of Service or execute arbitrary code, to process an overly long file:// URL or to open a specially crafted web page to execute arbitrary code. He could also read existing subscriptions and force subscriptions to arbitrary feed URLs, as well as inject arbitrary web script or HTML via built-in XSLT templates.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All Opera users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=www-client/opera-9.64"
