Description

The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200701-08 (Opera: Two remote code execution vulnerabilities)

Christoph Deal discovered that JPEG files with a specially crafted DHT     marker can be exploited to cause a heap overflow. Furthermore, an     anonymous person discovered that Opera does not correctly handle     objects passed to the 'createSVGTransformFromMatrix()' function.

Impact :

An attacker could potentially exploit the vulnerabilities to execute     arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running Opera by     enticing a victim to open a specially crafted JPEG file or a website     containing malicious JavaScript code.

Workaround :

The vendor recommends disabling JavaScript to avoid the     'createSVGTransformFromMatrix' vulnerability. There is no known     workaround for the other vulnerability.
