Opera < 12.15 Multiple Vulnerabilities

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 65927


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 12.15 and therefore is reportedly affected by the following vulnerabilities :

- A weakness exists in the RC4 encryption protocol, allowing an attacker to derive the plaintext. (1046)

- A weakness exists due to the application allowing cookies to be set for top-level domains, potentially exposing the cookie to the entire top-level domain. A malicious site could redirect the user to another website within the same top-level domain causing it to reuse its cookie. (1047)

- An unspecified, moderate severity issue exists that has an unspecified impact.


Upgrade to Opera 12.15 or later.
