Opera < 10.01 Multiple Vulnerabilities

Medium Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 5217


The remote host is vulnerable to multiple attack vectors.


The version of Opera installed on the remote host is earlier than 10.01. Such versions are potentially affected by multiple vulnerabilities :

- Specially crafted domain names can cause a memory corruption in Opera, which may lead to a crash or possibly remote code execution. (938)

- Opera may allow scripts to run on the feed subscription page, thereby gaining access to the feeds object. (939)

- In some cases, a Web font intended to be used for page content could be incorrectly used by Opera to render parts of the user interface, including the address field. (940)


Upgrade to Opera 10.01 or later.
