An Opera Advisory reports :
Opera for UNIX uses a wrapper shell script to start up Opera. This
shell script reads the input arguments, like the file names or URLs
that Opera is to open. It also performs some environment checks, for
example whether Java is available and if so, where it is located.
This wrapper script can also run commands embedded in the URL, so that
a specially crafted URL can make arbitrary commands run on the
recipient's machine. Users who have other programs set up to use Opera
to open Web links are vulnerable to this flaw. For these users,
clicking a Web link in for example OpenOffice.org or Evolution can run
a command that was put into the link.
