Opera 11.62 closes security holes

Posted: March 29, 2012 4:03 pm
By: - Information Security  

Opera released version 11.62 of its Web browser. This maintenance update fixes a number of bugs, improves overall stability, and closes seven security holes, five of which affect all supported platforms.

Two of the vulnerabilities are rated as “high” severity and could be exploited by an attacker to download and execute a possibly malicious file. This is done by tricking a victim into clicking a hidden dialogue box or by entering a specific keyboard sequence.

Three other problems rated as “low” severity, including an address-spoofing bug, an address-bar problem and a cross-domain information disclosure bug, were also fixed.

A moderate vulnerability affecting Opera for Mac and a low risk bug on Linux/Unix were also corrected.
