Opera < 9.52 Multiple Vulnerabilities

Medium Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 4634

Synopsis

The remote host contains a web browser that is affected by several issues.

Description

The version of Opera installed on the remote host is older than 9.52 and is reportedly affected by several issues :

- Specially-crafted URLs could start Opera in a way that would allow execution of arbitrary code.
- Invalid checking of what frames a site can change, allowing a website to open pages from other sites.
- An unspecified cross-site scripting issue.
- Custom shortcuts and menu commands may pass parameters created from uninitialized memory.
- Secure sites loading insecure content in a frame will cause Opera to incorrectly display the padlock icon.
- Feed sources can link to a user's local disk, and appropriate JavaScript can detect if these files exist or not.
- The page address may be changed when a user subscribes to a newsfeed subscription using the feed subscription button.

Solution

Upgrade to version 9.52 or higher.
