SUSE-SA:2006:038: opera Vulnerability Scan
Vulnerability Scan Summary
Check for the version of the opera package
Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test
The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory SUSE-SA:2006:038 (opera).
The web browser Opera has been upgraded to version 9.0 to add lots of
new features, and to fix the following security problem:
- CVE-2006-3198: An integer overflow vulnerability exists in the Opera
Web Browser due to the improper handling of JPEG files.
If excessively large height and width values are specified in
certain fields of a JPEG file, an integer overflow may cause Opera
to allocate insufficient memory for the image. This will lead to
a buffer overflow when the image is loaded into memory, which can
be exploited to execute arbitrary code.
- CVE-2006-3331: Opera did not reset the SSL security bar after
displaying a download dialog from an SSL-enabled website, which
allows remote attackers to spoof a trusted SSL certificate from an
untrusted website and facilitates phishing attacks.
