Opera < 8.50 Multiple Vulnerabilities

High Nessus Plugin ID 19766


The remote host contains a web browser which is vulnerable to attachment spoofing, script insertion and unintentional file uploads.


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

The installed version of Opera on the remote host contains two flaws its mail client and one in the browser. First, message attachments are opened from the user's cache directory without any warnings, which can be exploited to execute arbitrary JavaScript within the context of 'file://'. Second, appending an additional '.' to an attachment's filename causes the file type to be spoofed. And third, the browser is affected by an unspecified drag-and-drop vulnerability that facilitates unintentional file uploads.


Upgrade to Opera 8.50 or later.
