High Nessus Plugin ID 59555

Synopsis

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

Description

The version of Opera installed on the remote host is prior to 12.00.
It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities :

- An error exists that can allow the address bar to display incorrect locations due to certain combinations of navigation, reloads and redirects, which can aid in phishing attacks. (1018)

- An error in JSON handling can allow cross-site scripting attacks. (1019)

- An error exists related to handling double-click actions and new windows that can be used in cross-site scripting attacks. (1020)

- An error exists in the handling of window focus that can allow keystrokes to be associated with non-visible windows. (1021)

- An error in the handling of page loading can allow a malicious page to prevent the loading while showing an incorrect URL in the address bar. (1022)

Solution

Upgrade to Opera 12 or later.
