Opera patches browser against phishers

Antony Savvas

Opera Software has updated its Opera 8 browser to deal with at least five security vulnerabilities and also offer new tools to users.


The flaws corrected by the 8.01 update include cross-scripting and code injection vulnerabilities, which could allow phishers and other attackers to steal customer data and install malicious software on users’ machines.


The update also includes a JavaScript file to fix the rendering of pages and page elements which don’t currently display properly in Opera. 


A default start-up mode now also picks up from where the browser was closed the previous time. 


Version 8.01 can be downloaded from Opera’s website.
