Gentoo Security Advisory GLSA 200311-02 (Opera)

The remote host is missing updates announced in advisory GLSA 200311-02.
Users are encouraged to perform an 'emerge sync' and upgrade the package to the latest available version. Opera 7.22 is recommended as Opera 7.21 is vulnerable to other security flaws. Specific steps to upgrade: # emerge sync # emerge -pv '>=net-www/opera-7.22' # emerge '>=net-www/opera-7.22' # emerge clean
Buffer overflows exist in Opera 7.11 and 7.20 that can cause Opera to crash, and can potentially overwrite arbitrary bytes on the heap leading to a system compromise.
