Updated opera packages replace code signing certificate

Publication date: 06 Jul 2013
Type: security
Affected Mageia releases : 2 , 3


Opera 12.16 contains a replaced code signing certificate.

Opera Software recently experienced an attack on the internal infrastructure.
Following best practices, Opera Software is replacing signing certificates in
Opera with newly issued certificates. Certificates in Opera include the code
signing certificate for desktop binaries and the signing certificate for
automatic updates to browser.js. Opera's rootstore was not affected by the
attack and certificates used for accessing HTTPS websites are unchanged by
this update.
