Description

The Opera web-browser allows an attacker to execute arbitrary code by providing an invalid pointer to a virtual function in JavaScript. This bug can be exploited automatically when a user visits a web-site that contains the attacker's JavaScript code.

Solution

Disable JavaScript in your preferences or use another web-browser. Opera comes with JavaScript enabled by default.
