High Nessus Plugin ID 18991
SynopsisThe remote FreeBSD host is missing one or more security-related updates.
DescriptionA Secunia Advisory reports :
Secunia Research has discovered a vulnerability in Opera, which can be exploited by malicious people to steal content or to perform actions on other websites with the privileges of the user.
Normally, it should not be possible for the XMLHttpRequest object to access resources from outside the domain of which the object was opened. However, due to insufficient validation of server side redirects, it is possible to circumvent this restriction.
SolutionUpdate the affected packages.
