Opera web browser address bar spoofing weakness

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Acertains the version of Opera.exe

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is using Opera - an alternative web browser.

This version of Opera is vulnerable to a security weakness
that may permit malicious web pages to spoof address bar information.

This is reportedly possible through malicious use of the
JavaScript 'unOnload' event handler when the browser
is redirected to another page.

This issue could be exploited to spoof the domain of a malicious web page,
potentially causing the victim user to trust the spoofed domain.

Solution : Install Opera 7.50 or newer.
Network Security Threat Level: High
