Opera < 9.52 Multiple Vulnerabilities

This script is Copyright (C) 2008-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote host contains a web browser that is affected by several
issues.

Description :

The version of Opera installed on the remote host is earlier than
9.52 and thus reportedly affected by several issues :

- Specially crafted URLs could start Opera in a way that
would allow execution of arbitrary code.

- Invalid checking of what frames a site can change,
allowing a website to open pages from other sites.

- An unspecified cross-site scripting issue.

- Custom shortcuts and menu commands may pass parameters
created from uninitialized memory.

- Secure sites loading insecure content in a frame will
cause Opera to incorrectly display the padlock icon.

- Feed sources can link to a user's local disk, and
appropriate JavaScript can detect if these files exist
or not.

- The page address may be changed when a user subscribes
to a newsfeed subscription using the feed subscription
button.
