High Nessus Plugin ID 62821

New! Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)

Tenable calculates a dynamic VPR for every vulnerability. VPR combines vulnerability information with threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in attacks. Read more about what VPR is and how it's different from CVSS.

VPR Score: 5.9


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.
