Security Research Company has uncovered security vulnerability in Opera 10.5 and previous version. The name of the Company is VUPEN Security. Usually, the issue occurs due to the overflow of an error when the user visits website malformed HTTP headers. This security vulnerability has been confirmed that it works on Opera 10.50 for Windows XP SP3 with the likelihood that the other Operating Systems and Opera Version are affected as well.
Moreover, the Security Company has proved that the vulnerability can be exploited by attackers in order to crash the Browser and execute code on the Computer System. At the same, the Opera Browser was contacted by The Register after the disclosure of the vulnerability.

There is a patch under developing for this vulnerability, the sources from the “The Register” say. Besides, it is not confirmed that this vulnerability can be exploited. However, you can use it to prevent the Browser from crashing the Web Browser. Opera Spokesman Thomas Ford says, “ DEP, Data Execution Prevention Module, mitigates the problem”.

Therefore, in order to get the fix for the Browser, you have to wait. Otherwise, get ready to face the Browser crashes.

New Micro battery, power packed for high performance

For a size of a few millimetres, the new micro-batteries are powerful enough to jump start a car battery and then quickly charge the cell phone. Researchers from the University of Illinois have developed the micro batteries which can be used to drive compact electronic devices and new applications for radio communications. The micro batteries are so good that they can even out power the super capacitors. The results were published in ‘Nature Communications’ in the April 16 issue. The micro batteries have energy and power and with the researchers tweaking the structure of the micro batteries a little bit, its use can be for wide range applications. The high performance of the micro battery is based on its 3-dimensional micro-structure. Based on the design of fast charging cathode by Professor Paul Braun’s group, researchers developed the matching anode and integrated it with the fast charging cathode at a micro-scale and made a complete battery with high performance. These batteries cou
