Description of Issue
An integer overflow vulnerability exists in the Opera Web Browser due to the improper handling of JPEG files.

If excessively large height and width values are specified in certain fields of a JPEG file, an integer overflow may cause Opera to allocate insufficient memory for the image. This will lead to a buffer overflow when the image is loaded into memory, which can be exploited to execute arbitrary code.

Affected Systems

* Opera 8.54 and Earlier

Potential Impact
Remote Code Execution

Remediation Action
It is recommended that users upgrade to Opera 9.00, which addresses this vulnerability. Additionally, users should exercise caution while accessing the web, and should do so from accounts with limited privileges.
