Opera patches 7 bugs but keeps one secret
Opera Software ASA
today patched seven vulnerabilities in its flagship Opera browser, but
it declined to provide information about one of the bugs.
The Oslo-based browser developer hinted that other programs, not yet unpatched, were also affected by the flaw.
Today's update to Opera 9.52
fixes multiple bugs -- seven in the Windows version, five in the Mac
edition and six in the Linux browser -- that range from "extremely
severe" to "not severe" in the company's five-step threat-ranking
What was unusual, however, was that Opera omitted an
explanation for one of the fixed flaws. Instead, the company simply
stated in the change log: "Fixed an issue that could allow cross-site
scripting, as reported by Chris Weber of Casaba Security; details will
be disclosed at a later date."
