Opera < 9.20 Multiple Vulnerabilities

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 25036


The remote host contains a web browser that is susceptible to multiple issues.


The version of Opera installed on the remote host reportedly may allow a remote attacker to bypass cross-site scripting filters because it renders a web page without a defined charset with the charset of the parent page.

In addition, its FTP implementation can be leveraged by remote attackers to force the client to connect to arbitrary servers via FTP PASV responses.


Upgrade to Opera version 9.20 or later.
