All supported architectures
Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in Opera, allowing for
execution of arbitrary code.
Opera is a fast web browser that is available free of charge.
Michal Zalewski reported two vulnerabilities, memory corruption when
adding news feed sources from a website (CVE-2008-1761) as well as when
processing HTML CANVAS elements to use scaled images (CVE-2008-1762).
Additionally, an unspecified weakness related to keyboard handling of
password inputs has been reported (CVE-2008-1764).
A remote attacker could entice a user to visit a specially crafted web
site or news feed and possibly execute arbitrary code with the
privileges of the user running Opera.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All Opera users should upgrade to the latest version:
Code Listing 3.1: Resolution
# emerge --sync
