Opera Security Update

Friday, October 26th, 2007 by | Filed Under: Using The Internet

Opera Security Update

If you’re a big Opera user, you’ve probably been wondering when a new update would be available, right? As I’m sure all of you know, it has been awhile since Opera has made any changes (the last update was back in August 2007). But alas, your wait is now over! On October 17, 2007, the Opera team released a new version of the popular Web browser, now titled Opera 9.24. Along with it comes a couple important security updates that all Opera users should take advantage of right away. Please keep reading for all the details!

Now, the security updates I’m going to talk about may not seem very dramatic to you, but they are things that could affect your browsing experience, so it’s really important that you pay attention to them. The first security issue dealt with an arbitrary code that could harm external newsgroup clients and e-mail applications. Before it was fixed, Opera was running those types of programs incorrectly, which caused some major flaws. The second issue had to do with scripts that were overwriting certain functions on Web pages from other domains. If this wasn’t taken care of, it could really limit what you’re able to do when browsing the Web.

Like I said earlier, the new version of Opera is now available for download and as you can see from the paragraph above, it is a must have. If you don’t upgrade to the new version of Opera soon, you’re putting yourself at high risk of being hit by the two security flaws we’ve discussed today. So, to download Opera 9.24 right now, all you have to do is click here. Just choose the language you want it to be in and then click on the big green button that says Download Opera. Then just follow the directions and you’ll be all set. It only takes a couple seconds to keep your computer secure, so what are you waiting for? Make your Opera safe today!
