Opera < 7.50 File Download Extension Spoofing
Low Nessus Plugin ID 14247
SynopsisArbitrary code might be run on the remote host.
DescriptionThe version of Opera installed on the remote host contains a flaw that may allow a malicious user to trick a user into running arbitrary code.
The issue is triggered when an malicious website provides a file for download, but crafts the filename in such a way that the file is executed, rather than saved.
It is possible that the flaw may allow arbitrary code execution resulting in a loss of confidentiality, integrity, and/or availability.
SolutionInstall Opera 7.50 or later.
