Opera remote location object cross-domain scripting vulnerability

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Acertains the version of Opera.exe

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Summary :

The remote host contains a web browser that is affected by
multiple flaws.

Description :

The version of Opera on the remote host fails to block write access to

crafted URL to overwrite methods within the 'location' object that would
execute arbitrary code in a user's browser within the trust relationship
between the browser and the server, leading to a loss of confidentiality
and integrity.
