Opera security update

Post by GJones » 29. Nov 2012, 20:19

Just FWIW, the current version of Opera is now 12.11. The repo version, 12.02, contains a vulnerability in the handling of HTTP responses that would allow arbitrary code execution.

Personally I'd advise Opera users to make use of the browser's excellent content-blocking capabilities, and maintain a Javascript and plugin whitelist. However, I'm not certain, but I don't think that blocking Javascript or plugins would offer any protection from the vulnerability above.

This is entirely my fault. I maintain the Opera builds for Salix but due to changes at work and in my hone life I have been incredibly busy of late and let this slide a little. I'll submit a request for an update today. In the mean time here are the packages:

opera-12.11-i686-1ro.txz
opera-12.11-x86_64-1ro.txz
