  <title>Opera: Multiple vulnerabilities</title>
    Opera contains multiple vulnerabilities, which may allow the execution of
    arbitrary code.
  <product type="ebuild">opera</product>
  <announced>October 30, 2007</announced>
  <revised>October 30, 2007: 01</revised>

      <vulnerable range="lt">9.24</vulnerable>
    Opera is a multi-platform web browser.
    Michael A. Puls II discovered an unspecified flaw when launching
    external email or newsgroup clients (CVE-2007-5541). David Bloom
    discovered that when displaying frames from different websites, the
    same-origin policy is not correctly enforced (CVE-2007-5540).
  <impact type="normal">
    An attacker could potentially exploit the first vulnerability to
    execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running Opera by
    enticing a user to visit a specially crafted URL. Note that this
    vulnerability requires an external e-mail or newsgroup client
    configured in Opera to be exploitable. The second vulnerability allows
    an attacker to execute arbitrary script code in a user's browser
    session in context of other sites or the theft of browser credentials.
    There is no known workaround at this time for all these
    All Opera users should upgrade to the latest version:
    # emerge --sync
    # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose &quot;&gt;=www-client/opera-9.24&quot;</code>
