Opera Software have released Opera 9.6.3, a security update for the Opera web browser. Opera 9.6.3 has been released for Windows, Mac OS X, Linux, FreeBSD and Solaris. Apart from updating the Presto rendering engine to version 2.1.1, fixes have been applied to a number of flaws which could allow arbitrary code to be executed. These included an vulnerability manipulating text input contents, a flaw in HTML parsing, a problem with log host names in file: URLs, script injection while previewing news feeds and problems with built in XSLT templates. These problems were rated "Extremely Severe" or "Highly Severe" by Opera, leading them to make Opera 9.6.3 a highly recommended update.
