Opera Software Releases Opera Version 9.60

October 8th, 2008 . by DarkFiber Consulting

Opera Software has released Opera version 9.60 to address two vulnerabilities. The first vulnerability is due to improper validation of URLs. Exploitation of this vulnerability may allow an attacker to execute arbitrary code or cause a denial-of-service condition. The second vulnerability is due to unsafe storage of cached Java applets. Exploitation of this vulnerability may allow an attacker to obtain sensitive information or escape other normal restrictions.

DarkFiber Consulting encourages users and administrators to review Opera Advisory 901 and 902 and upgrade to version 9.60 to help mitigate the risks.
