high Nessus Plugin ID 42892
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.


The remote host contains a web browser that is affected by multiple issues.


The version of Opera installed on the remote host is earlier than 10.10. Such versions are potentially affected by multiple issues :

- Error messages can leak onto unrelated sites which could lead to cross-site scripting attacks. (941)

- Passing very long strings through the string to number conversion using JavaScript in Opera may result in heap buffer overflows. (942)
- There is an as-yet unspecified moderately severe issue reported by Chris Evans of the Google Security Team.


Upgrade to Opera 10.10 or later.
