Default Opera 12.11 fixes high-severity vulnerability

From http://h-online.com/-1753773

The recent 12.11 release of Opera's web browser addresses a high-severity security vulnerability that could have allowed a remote attacker to execute arbitrary code on a victim's system. According to the company, the problem in previous versions of the browser was caused by an error when handling HTTP responses that caused a heap-based buffer overflow. For an attack to be successful, a victim must first visit a maliciously crafted site.
