Description

Opera before 9.27 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) and possibly execute arbitrary code via a crafted newsfeed source, which triggers an invalid memory access.

Solution(s)

  • suse-upgrade-opera
  • suse-upgrade-suse-release

With Rapid7 live dashboards, I have a clear view of all the assets on my network, which ones can be exploited, and what I need to do in order to reduce the risk in my environment in real-time. No other tool gives us that kind of value and insight.
