Opera CVE-2008-5428 Denial-Of-Service Vulnerability

Opera is prone to a denial-of-service vulnerability. Opera 9.51 on Windows XP does not properly handle (1) multipart/mixed e-mail messages with many MIME parts and possibly (2) e-mail messages with many "Content-type: message/rfc822;" headers, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (stack consumption or other resource consumption) via a large e-mail message, a related issue to CVE-2006-1173.
