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.

Synopsis

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

Description

The version of Opera installed on the remote host is earlier than 10.50. Such versions are potentially affected by multiple issues :

- An error in the TLS protocol when handling session re-negotiations may allow man-in-the-middle attacks. (944)

- Widget properties may be exposed to third-party domains in some cases, possibly resulting in the leak of widget information or configuration options for the widget. (959)

Solution

Upgrade to Opera 10.50 or later.
