A vulnerability has been identified in Opera, which could be exploited by attackers to compromise a vulnerable system. This issue is caused by a memory corruption error when processing floating point numbers, which could allow remote attackers to crash an affected browser or execute arbitrary code by tricking a user into visiting a specially crafted web page.
Vulnerable versions are no longer in the tree. Added to existing GLSA request for bug 283391.
Please do not close security bugs. The Security Team will take care of it after the GLSA is released.
