Medium Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 5971
SynopsisThe remote host has a web browser installed that is affected by a memory corruption vulnerability.
DescriptionThe remote host is running the Opera web browser.
Versions of Opera earlier than 11.50 are potentially affected by multiple vulnerabilities :
- An error in the handling of data URIs that allows cross-site scripting in some unspecified cases. (Issue 995)
- An error exists in the browser's handling of error pages. Opera generates error pages in response to an invalid URL. If enough invalid URLs are attempted, the host's disk space is eventually filled, the browser crashes and the error files are left behind. (Issue 996)
- An additional, moderately severe and unspecified error exists. Details regarding this error are to be released in the future. (CVE-2011-2610)
