Re: Updates - June 21, 2010

Opera 10.54 is now available, as a security update.

The following was copied/pasted from http://secunia.com/advisories/40250/

Description
Some [highly critical] vulnerabilities with an unknown impact have been reported in Opera.

1) A vulnerability is caused due to an unspecified error. No further information is currently available.

2) Another vulnerability is caused due to an unspecified error. No further information is currently available.

3) Another vulnerability is caused due to an unspecified error. No further information is currently available.

4) Another vulnerability is caused due to an unspecified error. No further information is currently available.

Solution

Update to version 10.54.

 

EDIT:   I must admit, I didn't read the "details" here until after I posted this [and updated my Opera].     The "details" are laughable!

Yes, but the Devil is in the "details!"

At least I'm back to one secure browser - I worry about "unspecified errors" the most: better the devil you know!

Joe, one secure browswer --- presumably the updated Opera --- because you're using Foxit instead of Abobe Reader???

[for adobe users, ALL browsers are vulnerable]

ky:

Yes. I use Foxit only.

IE8 still unpatched/insecure due to:

Firefox 3.6.x still unpatched/insecure due to:

Opera is my only secure browser, if you believe Secunia.

[sigh] I refuse to lose sleep over all this, and if you happened to see the replay of CNBC's "Big Brother/Big Business" last night (which is a few years old), there's a lot more we can lose sleep over. I don't think security/privacy is getting any better -- especially with today's social networking. emoticon.Indifferent.title

Not losing any sleep over this... simply reporting the facts... "Just the facts, ma'am"
