And already fixed.
Feb. 5, 2003: Opera 7 security update
Opera 7.01 addresses the security vulnerabilities reported by Grey Magic Feb. 4, 2003.
UPDATE: Opera once again lived up to its excellent response record and released version 7.01, only 5 days after initial notification. The new version appears to fix all of the reported issues. Upgrade as soon as possible.
