Updated:  Nov 5 2008
Original Entry Date:  Nov 3 2008
Impact:   Disclosure of authentication information, Disclosure of user information, Execution of arbitrary code via network, Modification of user information
Fix Available:  Yes  Vendor Confirmed:  Yes  
Version(s): prior to 9.62
Description:   A vulnerability was reported in Opera. A remote user can conduct cross-site scripting attacks.

The browser does not properly process Javascript URLs in the links panel. When on a framed page, the browser executes the script in the context of the outer-most page rather than on the actual page.

A remote user can exploit this to cause arbitrary scripting code to be executed by the target user's browser in the security context of an arbitrary site. As a result, the code will be able to access the target user's cookies (including authentication cookies), if any, associated with the site, access data recently submitted by the target user via web form to the site, or take actions on the site acting as the target user.

Impact:   A remote user can access the target user's cookies (including authentication cookies), if any, associated with an arbitrary site, access data recently submitted by the target user via web form to the site, or take actions on the site acting as the target user.
Solution:   The vendor has issued a fixed version (9.62).

The vendor's advisory is available at:
