Description

The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200710-31 (Opera: Multiple vulnerabilities)

Michael A. Puls II discovered an unspecified flaw when launching     external email or newsgroup clients (CVE-2007-5541). David Bloom     discovered that when displaying frames from different websites, the     same-origin policy is not correctly enforced (CVE-2007-5540).

Impact :

An attacker could potentially exploit the first vulnerability to     execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running Opera by     enticing a user to visit a specially crafted URL. Note that this     vulnerability requires an external e-mail or newsgroup client     configured in Opera to be exploitable. The second vulnerability allows     an attacker to execute arbitrary script code in a user's browser     session in context of other sites or the theft of browser credentials.

Workaround :

There is no known workaround at this time for all these     vulnerabilities.
