Hijacking Opera’s Native Page using malicious RSS payloads
Despite the relative popularity of browsers such as Google Chrome, Internet Explorer, and Safari, indigenous to their respective company’s operations system (i.e. Apple OSX, Windows 8, etc.), it still seems as though less known browsers are still prone to malevolent control and software manipulation.
Opera Browser, 2nd fastest at 174.4 ms and narrowly behind Safari, is apparently showing a crack in an exploitable flaw.
Users are now able to achieve full control of the Opera Browser of target user. How does the method of delivery operate? RSS.
So users, be aware of the developments out there, and knowledge yourself to gain the highest potential out of when you use your browser.
