Synopsis :

The remote FreeBSD host is missing one or more security-related
updates.

Description :

A Secunia Advisory reports :

Secunia Research has discovered a vulnerability in Opera, which can be
exploited by malicious people to steal content or to perform actions
on other websites with the privileges of the user.

Normally, it should not be possible for the XMLHttpRequest object to
access resources from outside the domain of which the object was
opened. However, due to insufficient validation of server side
redirects, it is possible to circumvent this restriction.
