Opera web browser URI obfuscation

Vulnerability Assessment Summary

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The version of Opera installed on the remote host is vulnerable to a

to believe that he/she is accessing a trusted resource.

To exploit this issue, a possible hacker would need to set up a rogue web
site, then entice a local user to visit the site. Successful
exploitation would enable the attacker to execute arbitrary code on
this host.
