Description

The version of Opera installed on the remote host reportedly is affected by several issues :

  • Resized canvas patterns can lead to a program crash with possible memory corruption.

  • A newsfeed prompt can cause Opera to execute arbitrary code.

  • Improved keyboard handling of password inputs.
