Opera < 8.02 Multiple Vulnerabilities
High Nessus Plugin ID 19312
SynopsisThe remote host contains a web browser which is affected by multiple issues.
DescriptionThe remote host is using Opera, an alternative web browser.
The version of Opera installed on the remote host contains several flaws. One involves imaging dragging and could result in cross-site scripting attacks and user file retrieval. A second may let attackers spoof the file extension in the file download dialog provided the 'Arial Unicode MS' font has been installed, which is the case with various Microsoft Office products. And a third is a design error in the processing of mouse clicks in new browser windows that may be exploited to trick a user into downloading and executing arbitrary programs on the affected host.
SolutionUpgrade to Opera 8.02 or later.
