Opera < 9.24 Multiple Vulnerabilities

High Nessus Plugin ID 27506


The remote host contains a web browser that is affected by two vulnerabilities.


The version of Opera installed on the remote host reportedly may allow for arbitrary code execution if it has been configured to use an external news reader or email client and a user views a specially crafted web page.

In addition, it may also allow a script to bypass the same-origin policy and overwrite functions on pages from other domains when processing frames from different websites, which can be leveraged to conduct cross-site scripting attacks.


Upgrade to Opera version 9.24 or later.
