Denial of service in Opera before 10.53 due to failure to handle a series of document modifications that occur asynchronously.

oval:org.mitre.oval:def:11927

Opera before 10.53 on Windows and Mac OS X does not properly handle a series of document modifications that occur asynchronously which allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code or cause a denial of service (application crash) via JavaScript that writes <marquee> sequences in an infinite loop leading to attempted use of uninitialized memory. NOTE: this might overlap CVE-2006-6955.
