Opera < 12.15 Multiple Vulnerabilities

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 65927

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 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.

Solution

Upgrade to Opera 12.15 or later.
