This script is Copyright (C) 2004-2014 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related
patches.

Description :

The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200407-15
(Opera: Multiple spoofing vulnerabilities)

Opera fails to remove illegal characters from an URI of a link and to check
that the target frame of a link belongs to the same website as the link.
Opera also updates the address bar before loading a page. Additionally,
Opera contains a certificate verification problem.

Impact :

These vulnerabilities could allow an attacker to impersonate legitimate
websites to steal sensitive information from users. This could be done by
obfuscating the real URI of a link or by injecting a malicious frame into
an arbitrary frame of another browser window.

Workaround :

There is no known workaround at this time. All users are encouraged to
upgrade to the latest available version.
