Per http://www.securityfocus.com/archive/1/archive/1/506517/100/0/threaded VII. SOLUTION ------------------------- Chrome: Upgrade to latest version of Google Chrome (v3.0.195.21 or higher). If you remain connected to the internet, this should be automatic. Opera: Wait for upcoming patch for Scenario (3) in next minor release (non-alpha/beta) of Opera 10 [Opera 9 users need to upgrade].
