Opera 11.51 Released – Closes Security hole & Adds OS X Lion Fullscreen Support

(LiveHacking.Com) - Opera has released version 11.51 of its web browser to fix a security hole and add support for full screen support on OS X Lion. The security related problem fixed in this release is that unsecured web content may appear to be secure or trusted.

According to the security advisory: “When certain content is loaded and manipulated in a specific sequence, it can cause Opera to display the security information from the loaded resources in the address field and page information dialog. This allows a malicious page to display the security information from a secure or trusted third party, instead of its own security information.”

11.51 also fixes a low severity issue, as reported by Thai Duong and Juliano Rizzo; details of which will be disclosed at a later date.

More details can be found in the WindowsMac and Unix change logs. Opera 11.51 is available to download for Windows, Mac OS X, Linux (including a PowerPC version), Solaris and FreeBSD.
