Thanks for the heads up Bartek.
|Opera was informed on 15 May 2002 and confirmed our findings. A day later, in the evening of 16 May 2002, Opera informed us that the vulnerability was fixed and committed to Opera's own version control system. |
On 27 May 2002, Opera released version 6.03, which addressed this issue.
Opera has been extremely responsive and quick to understand and patch this vulnerability. They have shown that they truly do take security seriously.

Thanks, I just purchased Opera last week :)

It's a completely free update of course. You don't need to download the java version again if you have in the past. Just the 3meg dl is enough. Run it, and install it right ontop of the old one. No need to even remove the old one.

Thanks, already did so as soon as I read the post. I did download/install the whole thing though including Java. Oh well, didn't take long anyways :)

Wow! Is it me or did it just get even faster?

I just purchased Opera last week as well, (by following the affiliate link from here of course :), haven't had time to try it yet though...

Any suggestion what site to use for download? (I'm in California). I downloaded Opera just last night from their US site (also using the affiliate link here), and I got the 602 version. :( At least I haven't installed it yet.
PS... Whoops... cancel above. They were on top of it. I just had very bad timing. I have some WebVan stock too.

Wow!! Downloaded and installed 6.03.
Rumbas - it seems faster even to me!

My impression is 6.03 is faster as well. From my perspective, the difference is very noticeable. Nice!

I always enjoy seeing companies take security issues seriously. The quickness on plugging the hole was very prompt so I'm happy. :)
