Vulnerability Assessment Details

Opera web browser address bar spoofing weakness (2)

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 vulnerable to
address bar spoofing attacks.

Description :

The version of Opera is vulnerable to a security weakness that may
permit malicious web pages to spoof address bar information. It is
reported that the 'favicon' feature can be used to spoof the domain of
a malicious web page. A possible hacker can create an icon that includes
the text of the desired site and is similar to the way Opera displays
information in the address bar. The attacker can then obfuscate the
real address with spaces.

This issue can be used to spoof information in the address bar, page
bar and page/window cycler.
