Opera Software has published version 9.24 of the Opera web browser for Windows, Mac OS X, Linux, Solaris and FreeBSD. It is available for download from their servers. The release closes several security holes. One of them affects Opera installations invoking external applications for Usenet news or emails. In these configurations, arbitrary code can be injected and executed when the external application is opened.

Another hole creates a cross-scripting vulnerability. The release for Mac OS X also resolves a problem in the embedded Adobe Flash Player. Opera Software hasn't released any details about the flaw yet. You can find an overview of the changes in the changelogs for the respective platforms.
