Description

Opera before 12.01 on Windows and UNIX, and before 11.66 and 12.x before 12.01 on Mac OS X, does not properly escape characters in DOM elements, which makes it easier for remote attackers to bypass cross-site scripting (XSS) protection mechanisms via a crafted HTML document.

With Rapid7 live dashboards, I have a clear view of all the assets on my network, which ones can be exploited, and what I need to do in order to reduce the risk in my environment in real-time. No other tool gives us that kind of value and insight.
