[GLSA-200407-15] Opera: Multiple spoofing vulnerabilities

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Opera: Multiple spoofing vulnerabilities

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment
The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200407-15
(Opera: Multiple spoofing vulnerabilities)


Opera fails to remove illegal characters from an URI of a link and to check
that the target frame of a link belongs to the same website as the link.
Opera also updates the address bar before loading a page. Additionally,
Opera contains a certificate verification problem.

Impact

These vulnerabilities could permit a possible hacker to impersonate legitimate
websites to steal sensitive information from users. This could be done by
obfuscating the real URI of a link or by injecting a malicious frame into
an arbitrary frame of another browser window.

Workaround

There is no known workaround at this time. All users are encouraged to
upgrade to the latest available version.
