Synopsis :

The remote FreeBSD host is missing one or more security-related
updates.

Description :

Opera reports :

When loading GIF images into memory, Opera should allocate the correct
amount of memory to store that image. Specially crafted image files
can cause Opera to allocate the wrong amount of memory. Subsequent
data may then overwrite unrelated memory with attacker-controlled
data. This can lead to a crash, which may also execute that data as
code.
