I think this bit needs really highlighting

Quote:
It is possible that a few thousand Windows users, who were using Opera between 01.00 and 01.36 UTC on June 19th, may automatically have received and installed the malicious software.

Thanks for pointing that out

I've got the fresh installation of Opera now, and have completed a scan of Malwarebytes (fully updated), and haven't found any issues so far.
