Opera < 12.15 Multiple Vulnerabilities

Medium

Synopsis

The remote host has a web browser installed that is vulnerable by multiple vulnerabilities

Description

Versions of Opera earlier than 12.15 are potentially affected by the following vulnerabilities :

- A weakness exists in the RC4 encryption protocol, allowing an attacker to derive the plaintext. (1046)

- A weakness exists due to the application allowing cookies to be set for top-level domains, potentially exposing the cookie to the entire top-level domain. A malicious site could redirect the user to another website within the same top-level domain causing it to reuse its cookie. (1047)

- An unspecified, moderate severity issue exists that has an unspecified impact.

Solution

Upgrade to Opera 12.15 or later.
