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.
