Opera Web Browser is a browser that runs on multiple operating systems. Opera is exposed to multiple security issues. A remote heap-based buffer overflow issue occurs when the browser performs painting operations on a canvas while certain transformations are being applied. A security bypass issue exists that may allow attackers to trick a user into running a downloaded executable by obscuring a download dialog box with another tab and then closing the tab when a user is about to click it. A security bypass issue related to previews of news feeds may be exploited by attackers to automatically subscribe users to feeds. Opera versions prior to 10.61 are affected.
