Opera patches two browser security flaws
Opera Software ASA has released an upgrade addressing two serious security flaws involving Macromedia's Flash Player and a code execution bug affecting Linux and Unix users.
The first problem relates to Flash Player and was made public earlier this month. Macromedia warned that the bug in Flash Player, a widely used piece of desktop software, could allow attackers to take over a system.
The release also fixes a problem identified by Secunia Research, involving the shell script used to launch Opera in Linux and Unix environments. The flawed script processes shell commands enclosed in URLs passed to Opera via the command line.
