Opera released version 9.25 for Windows to fix four security flaws.

Opera recommends that the new release be installed. In an advisory, Opera says the new release addresses:

  • An issue where plug-ins could be used to allow cross domain scripting.
  • A problem with TLS certificates that could be used to execute arbitrary code.
  • Rich text editing so it can no longer be used to allow cross domain scripting.
  • And prevents bitmaps from revealing random data from memory.

The rich text editing issue has an advisory, Opera says the other flaws will have details released at a later date.

    More Coverity defect reports for OS/X. But wait, doesn't this third party defect affect all of the OSes, not just OS/X? Yes of course, but because of the different reporting rules for Windows and OS/X, this defect will never be listed by Coverity for Windows. If you count this for single defect for every Linux distro, you can even show how this one defect will result in 'many' Coverity reports for Linux, one for OS/X and zero for Windows.

    I feel safer with Vista already. Thanks ZDNet, your fine journalism is appreciated.
