Opera < 9.24 Multiple Vulnerabilities

Medium Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 4249

Synopsis

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

Description

The version of Opera installed on the remote host reportedly may allow for arbitrary code execution if it has been configured to use an external news reader or email client and a user views a specially-crafted web page. In addition, it may also allow a script to bypass the same-origin policy and overwrite functions on pages from other domains when processing frames from different web sites, which can be leveraged to conduct cross-site scripting attacks.

Solution

Upgrade to version 9.24 or higher.
