Opera < 11.64 URL Parsing Memory Corruption
High Nessus Plugin ID 59089
SynopsisThe remote host contains a web browser that is potentially affected by a memory corruption vulnerability.
DescriptionThe version of Opera installed on the remote Windows host is earlier than 11.64 and is, therefore, potentially affected by a memory corruption vulnerability.
Certain crafted URLs can cause the application to allocate incorrect amounts of memory and overwrite unrelated memory. This corruption can then lead to application crashes or even arbitrary code execution.
SolutionUpgrade to Opera 11.64 or later.
