Opera 6.0/7.0 Username URI Warning Dialog Buffer Overflow Vulnerability. CVE-2003-1387. Dos exploit for windows platform

The Opera browser for Win32 (and possibly other) systems is prone to a remotely exploitable buffer overflow condition. For security purposes, Opera will display a warning any time a user of the client visits a link containing a username as part of the URI. An excessively long username will trigger a buffer overflow condition related to this security feature that may overwrite the stack frame of the affected function. Attackers may exploit this vulnerability to execute instructions on client systems.
