Description Executioner 2007-01-06 07:24:16 UTC
Two vulnerabilities have been reported in Opera, which can be exploited by malicious people to compromise a user's system.

1) An unspecified error when processing JPEG files can be exploited to cause a heap-based buffer overflow via a JPEG file with a specially crafted DHT marker.

2) An error within createSVGTransformFromMatrix() can be exploited by passing an incorrect object to the said function.

Reproducible: Didn't try

Comment 8 Stefan Cornelius (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2007-01-09 18:17:25 UTC
nope, a GLSA has to be drafted, reviewed and issued. Then this will be closed.
