Opera Remains Safe and Secure

Earlier in the week, we told you about the Positive Hack Days event taking place in Moscow, where Opera was one of the browsers that hackers from all over Russia could attempt to breach for the purpose of highlighting practical security online. The event wrapped up last night, and we got the full report from our local Opera representative.
We're happy to tell you that Opera was not hacked!
As a side note, we learned from this event that browsers are not generally a preferred target for hackers, since the amount of effort they would need to exploit any weaknesses would not pay off for them in the end. Apart from that, however, Opera is also one of the most secure browsers around.
