Kudos to the Opera security team!
One of the creators of the MPack infection kit, a tool that allows data thieves and bot masters to take control of victims’ systems and steal personal information, said in an interview with SecurityFocus that using the Opera browser will keep you safe from his hacker tools.
Snippet from the interview:
“Do you feel sorry for the people whose machines are infected by an attack?
Well, I feel that we are just a factory producing ammunition.
Anything else you’d like to add?
I would advise you to use the Opera browser with scripts and plug-ins disabled in order not to be caught by the MPack someday.”
