click here for the update to protect against this Window injection vulnerability click here (when popups are not blocked).

Described in this Opera thread: click here. I first learnt about it from Speaker's Corner click here

Not a serious threat, but since upgrading is easy, why not do it?

Unless you're paranoid about phishing scams, I wouldn't recommend installing the update for 7.54. It spoils the browsing experience on some forums since the page refeshes on pressing the back button, instead of using the cached page. [url=click here]See this thread on the Opera forum[/url] for a discussion of the problem.

Fixed in Opera 7.60, but that won't be finished for a while I suspect. Maybe not until the New year. I have 7.60 P4 installed, but I find that there are some problems with mouse gestures so I don't use it much. I may reinstall the older build of 7.54 as I don't use banks or credit cards.
