Opera < 9.21 Transfer Manager Torrent File Handling Overflow

High Nessus Plugin ID 25290


The remote host contains a web browser that is prone to a buffer overflow attack.


The version of Opera installed on the remote host reportedly contains a buffer overflow vulnerability that can be triggered by a malicious Torrent file. Successful exploitation requires that a user on the affected host right-click on the torrent entry in the transfer manager rather than simply click on a torrent link and may allow a remote attacker to execute arbitrary code subject to the privileges of the user.


Upgrade to Opera version 9.21 or later.
