Opera < 9.01 Malformed 'HREF' DoS
Low Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 3661
SynopsisThe remote host is vulnerable to a Denial of Service (DoS) attack.
DescriptionThe remote host is using Opera 9.00. The version of Opera installed on the remote host contains a flaw in the way that it handles very large links. An attacker exploiting this flaw would need to be able to convince an Opera user to browse to a malicious URI. Successful exploitation would result in the browser crashing.
SolutionUpgrade to version 9.01 or higher.
