Synopsis :

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

Description :

The version of Opera installed on the remote host is earlier than
10.01. Such versions are potential affected by multiple issues :

- Specially crafted domain names can cause a memory
corruption in Opera, which may lead to a crash or
possibly remote code execution. (938)

- Opera may allow scripts to run on the feed subscription
page, thereby gaining access to the feeds object. (939)

- In some cases, a Web font intended to be used for page
content could be incorrectly used by Opera to render
parts of the user interface, including the address
field. (940)
