High Log Correlation Engine Plugin ID 800867

Synopsis

The remote host has a web browser installed that is affected by a memory corruption vulnerability.

Description

The remote host is running the Opera web browser.

Versions of Opera earlier than 11.11 are potentially affected by a memory corruption vulnerability because the application does not properly handle specific framesets when unloading a page. An attacker could craft a web page that will trigger the vulnerability which may allow arbitrary code execution subject to the privileges of the user running the affected application.

Solution

Upgrade to Opera 11.11 or later.
