Opera < 7.22 Multiple Vulnerabilities

High Nessus Plugin ID 11922


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


The remote host is using Opera, an alternative web browser.

The version of Opera installed on the remote host is affected by several issues. One may allow an attacker to drop arbitrary files with arbitrary names on this host; another may allow an attacker to traverse directories on the affected host.

To exploit these flaws, an attacker would need to set up a rogue website and lure a user of this host visit it using Opera. He might then be able to execute arbitrary code on this host.


Upgrade to Opera version 7.22 or later.
