Vulnerability Assessment Details

Opera relative path directory traversal file corruption vulnerability

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Acertains the version of Opera.exe

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The version of Opera installed on the remote host is vulnerable to a
file corruption vulnerability. This issue is exposed when a user is
presented with a file dialog, which will cause the creation of a
temporary file. It is possible to specify a relative path to another
file on the system using directory traversal sequences when the
download dialog is displayed. If the client user has write
permissions to the attacker-specified file, it will be corrupted.

This could be exploited to delete sensitive files on the systems.

Solution : Install Opera 7.23 or newer.
Network Security Threat Level: High

Networks Security ID: 9279
