Title: Opera CSS Background Property Long HTTPS URL Handling Memory Corruption
Jul 25, 2006
Opera contains a flaw that is triggered when handling a background property set to an overly long HTTPS URL. While reported as 'memory corruption' the issue just seems to be an out-of-bounds read error that does not corrupt memory in any manner. With a specially crafted web page, a context-dependent attacker can crash the browser or potentially have a more severe impact.
