Opera Hit by Critical 0-Day Vulnerability

Quote:

The latest version of the Opera browser is affected by a publicly disclosed vulnerability that allows potential attackers to execute arbitrary code remotely.

The flaw was discovered by French security researcher Jordi Chancel who disclosed it on his blog on January 7 and described it as an integer truncation error.

Mr. Chancel noted at the time that even though the crashes are easy to replicate, the address of the memory violation is unpredictable, making exploitation a lot more complicated.

However, on Friday, French vulnerability research vendor VUPEN Security announced that its researchers managed to develop a reliable arbitrary code execution exploit for the vulnerability.
