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.
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
'createSVGTransformFromMatrix' vulnerability. There is no known
workaround for the other vulnerability.
