Version 9.62 addresses security problems that were public knowledge but not handled in the recent version 9.61 [webmasterworld.com]

  • Fixed an issue where History Search could be used to execute arbitrary code, as discovered by Aviv Raff; see our advisory
  • The links panel no longer allows cross-site scripting; see our advisory

    That was quick! Glad to see they're actively following up on these things.

    As maybe 0.5% of my bandwidth over the last year has been used via Opera, I'm in no hurry to upgrade from 9.52...

    Am I missing anything?
