tag_impact = "Successful exploitation will allow remote attackers to cause
a denial of service.

Impact Level: Application";

tag_insight = "Multiple flaws are due to,
 - Opera executes a mail application in situations where an 'IMG' element has
   a 'SRC' attribute that is a redirect to a mailto: URL, which allows remote
   attackers to launch excessive application via an HTML document with many
   images.

 - Improper handling of 'IFRAME' element with a mailto: URL in its 'SRC'
   attribute, which allows remote attackers to consume resources via an HTML
   document with many IFRAME elements.";

since disclosure of this vulnerability. Likely none will be provided anymore.
General solution options are to upgrade to a newer release, disable respective
features, remove the product or replace the product by another one.";
