Opera JPEG DHT marker buffer overflow
|opera-jpeg-dht-bo (31305)||High Risk|
Opera is vulnerable to a heap-based buffer overflow, caused by improper bounds checking by the JPEG DHT marker. By creating a Web site containing a specially-crafted DHT marker, a remote attacker could overflow a buffer and execute arbitrary code on the system with the privileges of the victim, if the attacker could persuade the victim to visit the malicious Web site.
Upgrade to the latest version of Opera (9.10 or later), available from the Opera Web site. See References.
