Opera reports:

If a malicious page redirects Opera to a specially crafted address (URL), it can cause Opera to crash. Given sufficient address content, the crash could cause execution of code controlled by the attacking page.

Once a Java applet has been cached, if a page can predict the cache path for that applet, it can load the applet from the cache, causing it to run in the context of the local machine. This allows it to read other cache files on the computer or perform other normally more restrictive actions. These files could contain sensitive information, which could then be sent to the attacker.
