Opera relative path directory traversal file corruption vulnerability Vulnerability Scan
Vulnerability Scan Summary
Acertains the version of Opera.exe
Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test
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.
Threat Level: High
