Opera < 10.50 Multiple Vulnerabilities

medium Nessus Plugin ID 44960


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 10.50. 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)


Upgrade to Opera 10.50 or later.
