Servers belonging to software developers Opera have been compromised. At present it is unclear how much damage has been done. Opera themselves have been their usual less than forthcoming selves when queried, moreover their official statement raise more questions than it answers. Additionally there is no news for its users on it’s official facebook pages or twitter account.
