Opera < 12.10 Multiple Vulnerabilities

High Nessus Plugin ID 62821


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


The version of Opera installed on the remote host is earlier than 12.10 and is, therefore, reportedly affected by the following vulnerabilities :

- An error exists related to certificate revocation checking that can allow the application to indicate that a site is secure even though the check has not completed. (1029)

- An error exists related to Cross-Origin Resource Sharing (CORS) handling that can allow specially crafted requests to aid in disclosing sensitive data. (1030)

- An error exists related to data URIs that allows bypassing of the 'Same Origin Policy' and cross-site scripting attacks. (1031)

- An error exists related to JavaScript and native objects that allows domains to override methods of other domains. This error can aid in cross-site scripting attacks. (1032)

- An error exists related to SVG image handling that can result in arbitrary code execution. (1033)

- An error exists related to the handling of shortcuts in inline elements that can cause the application to be redirected to malicious pages. This error can aid in phishing attacks. (1034)

- An error exists related to the handling of 'WebP' images that can allow disclosure of memory contents.


Upgrade to Opera 12.10 or later.
