I suspect there are still a number of people still using Opera 12.17, perhaps even earlier versions.
A security update for 12.17 was released a few days and for now is probably ok to install.
Hopefully it will resolve many of the intermittent secure handshake problems I've been seeing for quite a while.
But I was wondering, if Opera accepts the offer, what this implies for 12.17/18.
Seems like it would it be possible for the new owners to feed malicious updates to 12.18.
I'm not referring to a binary update though as that can be controlled, but more to stuff the browser might be retrieving from Opera servers.
A tragedy for me though if the sale happens -12.17 is still my browser of choice.
