Today's Opera 9.62 release fixes one Extremely Severe and one Highly Severe security issues, so don't delay on the upgrade!

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?
