3) Description of Vulnerabilities

Secunia Research has discovered a weakness in Opera, which can be
exploited to display the SSL certificate from a trusted site on an
untrusted site.

The weakness is caused due to Opera not resetting the SSL security
bar after displaying a download dialog from a SSL enabled web site.
This allows an untrusted web site to display yellow SSL security bar
from a trusted web site.

NOTE: A more convincing exploit can be done using pop-up windows,
which do not have a visible address bar.
