Description

The version of Opera installed on the remote host is earlier than 10.10. Such versions are potentially affected by multiple issues :

  • Error messages can leak onto unrelated sites which could lead to cross-site scripting attacks. (941)

  • Passing very long strings through the string to number conversion using JavaScript in Opera may result in heap buffer overflows. (942)

  • There is an as-yet unspecified moderately severe issue reported by Chris Evans of the Google Security Team.
