  • Opera browser users - IMPORTANT

    A hacker/spammer using an Opera web browser has been attempting to break the security of one of our member's account.

    Opera provides its users with a crude alternative to a VPN - it only works for browser traffic and is not a true VPN.

    I have had to block the miscreant's IP address but this might mean other Opera users here that use the 'VPN' mode may find themselves blocked as well.

    If you do use Opera and the VPN mode, I strongly urge you to consider an alternative because there is a possibility I will eventually need to block a wider range of Opera VPN IP addresses if these attacks increase.

    Let me know if you need any further advice.

    I'd use slightly stronger words than 'miscreant,' but I'm not as nice as you, Ian..... [emoji4]
