Opera web browser file download extension spoofing

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The version of Opera installed on the remote host contains a flaw that
may permit a malicious user to trick a user into running arbitrary

executed, rather than saved.

It is possible that the flaw may permit arbitrary code execution
resulting in a loss of confidentiality, integrity, and/or
availability.
